Curley & Pynn’s work in the energy sector began in the mid-1990s with a successful campaign to secure Power Plant Siting Act approval for a new power plant. Since then, our team has become experts on key issues, from solar power and other renewable energy initiatives to natural gas distribution. Perhaps no other sector best illustrates our ability to successfully navigate the complexities of operating in a highly regulated industry.
In Good Company
Our team enjoys long-standing partnerships with some of Florida’s leading electric utilities and natural gas providers, including Florida Power & Light Company and the Lake Apopka Natural Gas District. We have also completed projects for Duke Energy, the Florida Municipal Electric Association, Exum Energy, Exxon Mobile and Florida Public Utilities.
