Pennsylvania Game Commission Executive Director Carl G. Roe will sign cooperative, voluntary agreements with seven companies to avoid, minimize and potentially mitigate any adverse impacts the development of wind energy may have on the state’s wildlife resources at a public signing ceremony at 2 p.m. on Wednesday, April 18, in the auditorium of the Game Commission’s headquarters. The agency’s headquarters is at 2001 Elmerton Avenue, just off the Progress Avenue exit of Interstate 81.
Brokered with substantial input from wind energy industry representatives and assistance from the Pennsylvania Wind and Wildlife Collaborative (PWWC), the Game Commission’s “Wind Energy Voluntary Cooperation Agreement” aims to provide guidance and consistency – in the absence of compulsory regulations for private lands – for development of wind turbines sites, which have become one of the state’s fastest-growing industries.
Representatives of the Rendell Administration and the PSWEC will attend the ceremony.
