Opportunity Zones can drive development of renewable energy; Dan Gauthier, Rose Law Group transactional attorney, comments

By James Ellsmoor  | Forbes Contributor  

 The race is now on to determine whether renewable energy developers can catch up to their real estate counterparts.

Opportunity Zones promise to be a major tool in the future development of the United States.

In the United States, Opportunity Zones (OZs) have provided developers with new possibilities. The race is now on to determine whether renewable energy developers can catch up to their real estate counterparts in utilizing this new tool. Opportunity Zones are defined as:

“economically-distressed communities where new investments, under certain conditions, may be eligible for preferential tax treatment.”

OZs are located in 8,700 communities across all 50 states and the 5 US territories, including 878 in California and 862 in Puerto Rico. With over 30 million people living within these areas, this incentive creates one of the largest development markets in the United States.
