NEPA Strategies and Compliance
We assist clients with a wide array of environmental assessments and statements, identifying strategies for your project to comply with the National Environmental Policy Act. Our expertise in environmental law and federal documentation requirements make us ready to move your next project along.
Our extensive experience obtaining project permits for a wide range of clients has honed our ability to react quickly to your permitting needs, and ensures appropriate and affordable permit terms and mitigation measures. SolsticeAK has worked with clients to obtain permits for alternative energy, marine infrastructure, water and wastewater, transportation, and other projects throughout the state.
SolsticeAK helps communities and tribes plan for prosperous futures and ensure a clean and safe environment for the next generation. Balancing environmental protections, cultural values, and economic development, we bring together community, industry, and regulatory agencies to create practical plans and assist you throughout the planning process.
SolsticeAK facilitates meaningful dialogue between a well-informed population and municipalities, non-profits, businesses, and other organizations. We understand the need to share important information prior to and throughout community action, and have successfully implemented this exchange in rural villages as well as urban centers. Some of our public involvement work has included outreach in Bethel, including public meetings, to obtain approvals for Alaska Village Electric Cooperative’s wind turbine; meetings in Mountain Village to gather input on a new road project; and outreach in Kobuk, Noatak, and Shungnak to develop energy priorities.
Since 2008, we have helped secure over $100 million for projects ranging from small harbor improvements to hydroelectric energy facility design. We've acquired grants in small remote rural communities, like St. Mary’s, King Cove, Shungnak, and Mekoryuk; mid-size towns like Seward, Bethel, and Whittier; and large areas, like the Mat-Su. We have helped acquire funding for important community infrastructure like wind turbines, docks, roads, river erosion control, and libraries. We have fine-tuned our approach to grant applications to ensure that the grant’s outcomes are well defined, realistic, and achievable.
