Pattern Development establishes a presence in a community by holding information sessions, giving presentations, and in many cases opening a local office staffed with a community liaison. The project team members make themselves accessible through a dedicated e-mail address and phone line, by attending local meetings and gatherings, and establishing dialogue with local leaders. Project information and updates are shared through websites and newsletters.
During operations, Pattern Energy continues this engagement to maintain open communication with our neighbors. We give site tours and presentations to local groups, and periodically host gatherings for landowners and the wider community. Most of our operating sites have websites for sharing facility news and information, and we send periodic electronic newsletters to stakeholders who opt-in to receive them.
