Print Friendly Version

Consumers Energy hosted a wind energy meeting at the Henry Building on the campus of the Michigan State University on March 25, 2014. The East Lansing Field Office was the main organizer and gave presentations that included the Endangered Species Act, eagles and the land-based guidelines. A representative from Detroit Edison mediated the meeting and there was a presentation from Dr. Al Kurta about bats and specifically, the northern long-eared bat which is proposed for listing. It was an informational exchange meeting and companies developing wind projects in Michigan were present and their input was encouraged. All attendees benefitted from the exchange and similar meetings are tentatively planned for the future.
