ENVIRONMENTAL COMPLIANCE FOR SOLAR PROJECTS IN CALIFORNIA

 Solar energy construction projects often require special attention to sensitive wildlife and plant species, nesting birds, noxious weeds, stormwater pollution prevention and erosion control issues. DNL Environmental is experienced in all aspects of renewables construction, from clearing and grading access roads to tower construction and restoration. We can help you stay in compliance with numerous county, state and federal requirements by completing pre-construction wildlife, rare plant and nesting bird surveys, monitoring construction for biological and environmental compliance and assisting with post-construction restoration.
