Questions for Consideration in Providing Public Comment

1) The approach, utility, consistency, detail, and scientific validity of the draft Land-based Wind Energy Guidelines (Guidelines).

2) Use of the Guidelines as regulatory for wind facility development on all Federal lands. At a minimum, regulatory for all Department of Interior jurisdictional lands where commercial, wind projects are being/might be constructed (e.g., National Wildlife Refuges, Bureau of Land Management and National Park Service lands).

3) Use and application of the Guidelines for a residential/farm sized turbine.

4) Use of the draft Guidelines, once finalized, as regulatory versus voluntary on all lands, public and private.
