Wind technology is more than just a modern engineering marvel—it's a symbol of a sustainable future. When thoughtfully installed and utilized, wind power can offer a cost-effective and environmentally friendly alternative to traditional fossil fuels. 

As a Louisville lawyer and green technology consultant, I'm extremely passionate about supporting the community's transition to renewable energy sources. I believe that wind power is one of the key solutions for mitigating climate change and creating a world rich with opportunities for future generations.  


Wind power is harnessed through wind turbines, which convert the kinetic energy of wind into electrical energy, a process commonly called wind energy conversion. Wind technology includes the turbines and the associated infrastructure, including transmission systems, foundations, and energy storage solutions.  

However, transitioning to wind power technology involves much more than just installing wind turbines. As a consultant, my role is to provide clients with comprehensive guidance and support throughout the entire process. This includes everything from initial feasibility studies and site assessments, to project financing and ongoing maintenance and operations.  


The deployment of wind power stands at the crossroads of business innovation and community impact. In Louisville, adopting wind technology also has the power to catalyze economic growth by creating jobs, both in manufacturing the turbines and in their maintenance.  

For local businesses, investing in wind power infrastructure signifies a commitment to sustainability, potentially reducing operational costs with clean, renewable energy. This forward-thinking approach not only strengthens the local economy but also enhances Louisville’s reputation as a hub for green technologies, attracting further investment and talent who are enthusiastic about contributing to an eco-conscious community. 

If you're ready to speak with a wind power consultant in Louisville, Kentucky, I'm here to help. My legal and consulting services are tailored to assist businesses and organizations navigate the realm of renewable energy development. From conducting feasibility studies to securing necessary permits, I offer comprehensive support for all stages of wind power project implementation. 




In Kentucky, we recognize wind power as a viable renewable resource under the Incentives for Energy Independence Act (IEIA). This act encourages the development of renewable energy facilities, including wind power projects, that generate at least 1 MW of electricity.  

By harnessing the wind's power, we can reduce our dependence on fossil fuels and contribute to a cleaner, greener future. 

But let's talk about incentives. You might be wondering, "What's in it for me?" Well, Kentucky offers attractive incentives to community members and businesses that invest in wind power projects. One incentive is the sales tax incentive provided under the IEIA. Approved companies can receive up to 100% of the Kentucky sales and use tax paid on materials, machinery, and equipment used in the construction, retrofitting, or upgrading of a wind power project. That's quite a chunk of change saved! 

Furthermore, employees who are hired due to wind power projects may be subject to a wage assessment of up to 4% of their gross wages. But here's the kicker—they're eligible for a Kentucky income tax credit equal to the assessment withheld from their wages. These incentives not only benefit businesses; they also create job opportunities and support the local economy.  


As a Louisville wind power consultant, I offer comprehensive support for community members and businesses who are implementing and managing wind power projects. My services include but are not limited to:  

  • Feasibility Studies: I'll look at factors such as wind resource availability, site suitability, and financial viability to determine the potential success and benefits of a wind power project.  

  • Regulatory Guidance: I'll assist you in obtaining the necessary permits and ensuring compliance with all applicable regulations, including those outlined in the IEIA. 

  • Financial Consultation: I can help you understand and apply for fiscal incentives under the Incentives for Energy Independence Act. 

  • Employment Law Assistance: I can help businesses navigate the wage assessment and income tax credit processes for new employees hired due to wind power projects. 

  • Site Planning: I'll provide insights into optimal turbine placement, considering both environmental impact and the efficiency of energy production. 

  • Community Engagement: I'll facilitate communication and education efforts to garner local support and promote the benefits of wind power to the community. 

  • Legal Support: I offer robust legal advice to protect your investment and mitigate risks throughout the lifecycle of your wind power project. 

Ultimately, I'll provide guidance and support throughout the entire project lifecycle. From project planning to construction, operation, and any disputes, I have the Environmental, Social, and Governance services to cultivate a smooth project execution in wind power solutions. 


It's not just about the law for me—it's about people. It's about our community here in Louisville, Kentucky. It's about working together to make a difference.  

Before I even thought about studying law, I delved into theology. To this day, I remain active in church, sometimes even stepping up to the pulpit to deliver a sermon. I believe that my faith guides me in my practice, providing me with the moral compass needed to advocate for justice. 

I’ve been involved in activism since my school days, and that spirit of advocacy never left me. In the '90s, I worked at a law firm that represented labor unions, and that experience forged my strong connection to workers' rights. I spent some time as an AFL-CIO officer, and later, I worked for a union deeply involved in politics. These experiences deepened my appreciation for the intersection of politics, law, and social justice. 

One thing that truly distinguishes me is my ability to adapt my role to fit the needs of my clients. Sometimes, you need a counselor; other times, an inspirer, or a staunch legal advocate. I have the flexibility and the skills to be all these and more. 

I devote a significant portion of my time to fighting for social justice, particularly racial justice. For larger projects, I collaborate with businesses, elected officials, nonprofits, churches, and other community leaders. I firmly believe that we can achieve more together than apart.
