Altis’ approach to renewable energy development is routed in land use consistency. We view permitting as both a technical and political process; the former requiring technical and project management skills, and the latter requiring strong communications. Altis’ staff is adept in technical writing and we commonly represent our clients in public hearings.
A technically sound permit application doesn’t guarantee approval. It is equally important to gain a pathway to favorable votes from the elected board. Stakeholder communication, education and advocacy are core components of successful Altis acquired permits.
As developers who understand the big picture, Altis permits applications are concise and to the point. Where third party expertise is needed, Altis draws upon its network of specialists, which include sound, aviation, cultural, property values, geotechnical, ecological and visual.
