By integrating his 25-year legal background with his
business, energy management, solar and land-use
development experience, Mike has refined the
often-confusing process of navigating tax incentives, rebates, and financing terms that impact the viability of energy efficiency upgrades and solar projects. He is skilled at negotiating the labyrinth of public program financing.
After representing business and real estate development clients for many years, Mike has a thorough understanding of the design-build process, land use, and approval processes including funding resources essential to successful project completion.
Through his networking and project management skills, Mike has developed relationships with professionals and resources to facilitate everything from initial project review, baseline assessment and planning, to financing options including rebates, for efficiency project implementation.
Well-versed in an array of financing options, Mike is an expert in publicaly financed programs offered by utility companies, such as On Bill Financing and the new On Bill Repayment financing programs. OBF is a particularly attractive, low- cost method for commercial customers to use energy savings as the source of repayment.
