Ironwood Consulting Continues Strong Relationship with First Solar

Ironwood Consulting continues its strong client relationship with First Solar on large-scale Solar Development Projects throughout California and Nevada. Our experienced biologists and planning associates have been providing life-of-project biological resource management services from the start on First Solar’s Desert Sunlight, Copper Mountain, Stateline and Silver State South projects.


Ironwood is actively monitoring translocated tortoises and conducting full health assessments on nearly 200 tortoises in the construction phase of Stateline and Silver State South and the proposed Dry Lake SEZ solar projects.

Most recently our team spearheaded the tortoise translocation planning on the proposed Dry Lake Solar Energy Zone solar sites. Our technical experts worked together with three project proponents, including First Solar, to draft a comprehensive, agency-approved tortoise translocation plan.
