First Coastal California Wind Farm Faces Opposition from Environmental Groups
Background: An energy company proposed the first-ever Coastal California wind farm in one of the state’s toughest areas for entitlement. After years in the approval process, major environmental groups were united in opposition and the outcome was in significant doubt just weeks prior to final hearings.
Action: Davies executed a last minute campaign that flooded decision makers with emails, letters, and phone calls, and recruited more than 30 articulate supporters to speak at the final hearing.
Result: With hearing rooms packed by supporters and coupled with a powerful and compelling presentation, the opposition was marginalized and the project unanimously approved.
