Renewable Energy Permitting Consultants

To adequately protect Hawaii’s resources and residents, the permitting requirements for renewable energy projects in Hawaii can be long and exhaustive; often involving many county, state, and federal agencies with their own individual processes and requirements. Many successful renewable energy companies enlist the support of local consulting firms well versed in permit planning for Hawaii projects. This list is a sample of consulting firms (listed in alphabetical order) that specialize in comprehensive project permit planning and may have some renewable energy development experience.
