Developer CONSULTING in

Northern California

Fostering mutually-beneficial relationships to create a better, more sustainable future for the North Coast.

Some of the largest Native American tribes in California have called the North Coast home for centuries. North Coast tribes take great pride in their rich history of subsisting on the productive fisheries and landscapes of these areas. Tribal governments play a critical role in natural resource management and business development in all aspects of community well-being.

In the ongoing conversation about offshore wind development in Northern California, it is crucial to include all North Coast Native American sovereign nations at the center of discussion and debate. In recent years, state and federal governments have taken action to implement this inclusion into development processes. Organizations such as the California Intergovernmental Renewable Energy Task Force and the State-Tribal Ocean Renewable Energy Working Group laid the groundwork to formalize ways for developers to gain input from Native American governments and partner with Native American communities. These relationships have become key factors in the offshore lease nomination and approval process.


Building Community Trust

Lost Coast Wind’s team of experienced consultants engages meaningful, impactful partnerships between local Native Americans and developers to ensure successful offshore wind energy development. Building trust in the Native American community is not accomplished rapidly or by simple monetary means, and our team takes a thoughtful, strategic approach to working with each tribe.

Our collective expertise in media and community engagement paired with team experience serving as staff for various North coast Native American tribes and local organizations gives us a unique perspective on forging meaningful government to government, civic and business partnerships–and again–achieving project success.
