The RDEG Team
RDEG’s team members are all natives of West Texas and are familiar with the issues that the development of wind energy and solar energy projects create for farmers, ranchers, and other rural landowners. They also recognize that the royalties from such projects can provide much needed income diversification for those involved in the agriculture industry and that the projects provide an increased tax base for rural counties.
