About me

Todd Glass is a partner at Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati, where he leads a market-leading energy and infrastructure practice focused on the representation of energy companies, project developers, and investors in the energy sector in North America, Asia, and Europe.


Todd has extensive experience with the development, purchase, and sale of renewable and thermal generation projects; structuring, negotiation, and implementation of energy transactions and financings; and state and federal regulation of the energy industry. He served various enterprises as lead project counsel in the commercialization, project development, regulatory approvals, and financing of alternative energy projects and technologies, including solar (solar photovoltaic (PV), concentrated solar, and solar thermal), wind, fuel cells/energy storage, biomass, hydroelectric, natural gas, and clean coal. Notably, he has led some of the most significant energy deals in North America, including landmark projects, such as the 14.2 MW Nellis AFB Solar Project (the first utility scale solar PV project in the US), BrightSource Energy's power purchase agreements (totaling 900 MW) for its Ivanpah project (the world's largest solar thermal power plant), and Stem's 85MW energy-storage enabled distributed demand response agreement in Southern California (a first-of-a-kind utility scale energy storage transaction).


In addition, Todd represents utility-scale solar and other renewable energy clients in their power sales and renewable energy credit (REC) transactions, and he advises energy technology companies on a variety of commercial matters, national and international joint ventures, mergers and acquisitions, and venture and other equity and debt financings.


Todd previously served as chair of Heller Ehrman's energy practice group and co-chair of its energy and clean technologies practice. Earlier in his career, he worked on environmental and energy policy issues for the Bonneville Power Administration, the Washington Utilities and Transportation Commission, an environmental consulting firm in contract with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency in Washington, D.C., and the U.S. House of Representatives' Committee on Science and Technology.
