He has worked on developing and financing wind, solar and geothermal projects and negotiated off-take agreements such as renewable energy credit sales agreements and residential and commercial solar power purchase agreements. He has represented the world’s largest wind turbine manufacturer in turbine supply, warranty and service arrangements for transactions with developers active in North America.

Wade holds a bachelor’s degree with honors from Colgate University and a law degree from the University of Michigan Law School.
