wind energy & endangered species review

 
 
Different types of wind projects will cause varying degrees of potential impact to wildlife as well as varying degrees of certainty associated with the assessments of potential impact.  Dillterra can offer reviews of potential wind farm locations to reduce likely impacts to wildlife and therefore reduce likelihood of Endangered Species Act violations.


 

What you should know

In contrast to the MBTA, section 9 of the ESA does allow provisions for “incidental take” of endangered species. Take incidental to a lawful activity may be authorized through the initiation of formal consultation pursuant to either Section 7, if federal funding is involved, or Section 10, if federal funding is not involved, via the completion of a satisfactory Habitat Conservation Plan for the listed species. If necessary Dillterra can help navigate this process.
