Curt Knapp has power and utilities in his DNA.  Growing up, Curt watched his grandfather, who was a key figure in the atomic energy industry, work to bring energy to the northeast corridor of the United States.  Curt, in his own way, followed in his grandfather’s footsteps and is a key player in the renewable energy and extraction industries in Ohio.  A go-to for property issues in Ohio, Curt is often involved when energy and utility generation companies are planning and developing pipelines, compressor facilities, solar and wind farms, and drill pads.
