our specialities

local utilities

Utility companies work daily to develop cost-effective facilities and methods to provide affordable energy to consumers all while minimizing their impact on the environment. We provided services like compliance monitoring, habitat assessments, agency coordination, mitigation and stream/wetland construction and restoration so these companies to focus on their core purpose - providing energy - to meet consumer and regulatory expectations.

wind energy

Tapping into wind resources has become a popular and profitable way to generate green power. But even wind farms can impact the environment. Jackson Group has come to be known as one of the most reliable consultants concerning endangered species in the wind energy industry. Our team's exhaustive surveys and careful analysis provide our clients with the peace of mind that comes with knowing any new development has been thoroughly assessed for the presence or absence of any endangered species that might be in the area.

coalmining

Coal generates more than half of the electricity in the United States. The coal mining permit process imposes very strict regulations to ensure that the impact of coal mining on the environment is minimized to the greatest extent possible. Jackson Group has worked with mines throughout the southeast gathering data and performing surveys to find ways to further minimize impacts even beyond government requirements.
