From replying to the initial RFP and optioning the land, to meteorological testing, negotiating the terms of the PPA and the ultimate sale of the farm, Mitchell was involved in every step and at every level.  His birds-eye view of the regulatory landscape is as impressive as is his grasp of the smallest technical detail.  This project would not have succeeded without him.”
