Comments on the Draft EIS and HCP for the Beech Ridge Energy Wind Facility
Rick Webb: These comments concern the Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) and the Draft Habitat Conservation Plan (DHCP) for the Beech Ridge Wind Energy Project (BRE) in Greenbrier and Nicholas Counties, West Virginia. I am submitting these comments due to concern about the environmental impacts of utility-scale wind energy development in the central Appalachian mountain region. Because of flaws and insufficiencies in the information and analysis provided in both the DHCP and the DEIS, I recommend that the U.S. Fish . . . Complete article »

Displacing Mountaintop Removal Mining with Wind Turbines
We thank Mr. Hathaway for providing his analysis, and we certainly share his concern about the destruction associated with mountaintop removal mining. However, we find that his analysis doesn’t stand-up to close examination. Our first objection concerns Mr. Hathaway’s basic premise that wind-powered generation will reduce the need for coal-fueled generation. The recent National Academies report on Environmental Impacts of Wind-Energy Projects compared U.S. Department of Energy projections for growth in electricity demand with projections for growth in wind generation. . . .

Environmental Impacts of Wind-Energy Projects
Key points concerning the benefits and risk based on information in the National Academies report (released May 3), from one of its committee members. Note the ranges of 2.5-11.5 birds and 15-28 bats killed annually per installed megawatt. For birds, that rate exceeds that in the notorious Altamont Pass Wind Resource Area (where it is estimated that 3-8 birds per installed megawatt are killed, 1.5-2 of them raptors). They are based on observations at existing sites in the Appalachian Mountains . . . Complete article »
