Solar and BESS-Related Projects 

The boom in the deployment of various solar-related projects — notably, utility-scale battery energy storage systems (BESS) — requiring right-of-way and land acquisitions has been spurred by increasing incentives and mandates for the rapid development of energy storage.

Depending upon the developer, owner and project location, three distinct permitting regimes apply in developing BESS projects. SelectROW specializes in securing agreements for the placement of BESS projects on behalf of:

  • Private land projects — state and local government agencies
  • Utility-sponsored projects — Public Utility Commission (PUC)
