AWEA files comments on "unworkable" U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service guidelines
AWEA filed detailed comments with the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service (USFWS) today on two sets of proposed avian guidelines for wind power development, calling the draft regulations "unworkable." The full story is available in the AWEA website pressroom.
On the first proposal, the "Draft Land-Based Wind Energy Guidelines," AWEA urged a return to a set of consensus guidelines worked out during a two-and-a-half-year Federal Advisory Committee process by representatives of the wind industry, wildlife conservation groups, and other stakeholders.
