Members of Verrill's Energy Group regularly participate in appellate review of agency decisions affecting energy companies and projects. Whether defending the issuance of a permit, license or approval needed for construction of a new energy project or challenging an agency's denial of such a request, members of our group appear frequently in appellate court to review the conclusions and findings made by the regulatory agency.
In cases of the Maine PUC, where appeals go directly to the Maine Supreme Judicial Court, members of the practice group have argued several cases involving interpretation of Maine's historic Electric Restructuring Act. Similarly, under the Wind Energy Act, in which judicial appeals of certain siting decisions also go directly to the Maine Supreme Judicial Court, Verrill has successfully argued numerous judicial appeals of wind power projects and has defended federal approvals for such projects in the United States District Court.
