ELECTRIC UTILITY REAL ESTATE SPECIALISTS

NSI is one of the few real estate firms focused on electric utility real estate. For over 30 years, we have successfully managed various electric transmission, generation, and distribution projects for dozens of utilities throughout the US. Our unique specialization in this field makes us the ideal partner to support your day-to-day department needs, either as a full-time dedicated in-house member, or out in the field providing a full scope of project services, including acquisition, permitting and title services in support of wind, solar, and transmission projects.

CONSULTING FOR MERGERS, ACQUISITIONS, DIVESTITURES, AND RESTRUCTURING

We understand that electric utilities often face complex mergers, acquisitions, divestitures, and restructuring challenges, typically in response to regulatory mandates. What sets NSI apart is our expertise in delivering notable transactions involving the transfer of hundreds-of-thousands of properties. We assist utilities in managing these large and complex initiatives effectively to ensure a smooth transition in a timely and cost effective manner.

FULL SCOPE OF RIGHT-OF-WAY SERVICES

NSI offers a comprehensive range of right-of-way services to support utility projects like solar, wind, and transmission. This includes acquisition, permitting, and title services. Our expertise extends to nuanced utility services like condemnation support and managing complex colocation and crossing arrangements with third parties, including wireless carriers and railroads.

DECARBONIZATION TRANSITION

US electric utilities today are pervasively transitioning their energy portfolios in an effort to accelerate the global transition to net zero. As a result, grids need to be expanded, new renewable assets sited, and old fossil fuel plants decommissioned to meet the emerging demands of this transition. We understand the real estate complexities of this evolving landscape and are equipped to support utility companies facing these challenges.
