Legal Considerations of Renewable Energy Production in State Right-of-Way
November 22, 2022 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm EST
State departments of transportation (DOT) have used renewable energy sources to power small-scale or local needs for many years. For example, traffic lights may be powered by solar energy. Renewable energy production at the utility scale must adhere to a different set of federal and state policies. TRB will host a webinar on Tuesday, November 22, 2022 from 11:30 AM to 1:00 PM Eastern that will address these rules and their relationship with various factors, including the financing mechanism that was used to acquire the right-of-way and ownership considerations. Presenters will discuss legal considerations of renewable energy production at the utility scale, highlight recent successful implementations, and share state DOTs’ plans for renewable energy production in the right-of-way.
