Rochelle leverages her extensive experience representing wind, solar, storage, and other energy companies throughout the United States to successfully counsel clients through mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, and project development transactions.
Developers, sponsors, purchasers, sellers, and investors rely on Rochelle’s guidance and solution-oriented approach to navigate each phase of a project’s lifecycle – from inception to construction and through financing and operation. This includes the negotiation of land acquisition documents, power purchase agreements, construction contracts, operations and maintenance agreements, shared facilities agreements and financing documents, including ISDA and other hedge and swap agreements.
Rochelle specializes in power purchase agreements (PPAs) and represents clients in the negotiation of traditional physical offtake PPAs with both utilities and private commercial and industrial offtakers as well as financial and virtual PPAs or contracts for differences. Rochelle has successfully negotiated and helped clients execute corporate PPAs for renewable energy projects totaling more than 2 GW in the aggregate.
