Midwest Wind Habitat Conservation Plan
To meet the growing demand for rapid approval of wind energy plants, yet ensure conservation of federally-listed species, the Service and a coalition of eight states, The Conservation Fund, and representatives of the wind energy industry are preparing a Multi-Species Habitat Conservation Plan. This is an incidental take permitting program for federally listed species that may be impacted by existing and future wind energy projects in the Midwest Region.
Environmental Impact Statement
We are in the process of preparing an environmental impact statement to evaluate the potential impacts of issuing incidental take permits for covered species under the multi-species Habitat Conservation. We provided a public scoping period from June 12 to August 11, 2015.
