Notable Quotes


"You asked if the Service is studying the possible cumulative effects of the expanding domestic wind industry on migratory birds and other wildlife. In our letter... dated July 13, 2004, we indicated that the Service is not currently conducting independent studies related to wind energy impacts on migratory birds or bats in the Northeast. Instead, we have been requesting information from project proponents on the temporal and spatial use by migratory birds and bats of commercial grade wind energy sites in the Northeast. However, the wind industry has been generally reluctant to conduct studies and provide such information. Without such pertinent information, and adequately trained field staff, project impacts on migratory birds and bats are difficult to adequately assess, and we are not able to perform our regulatory and advisory roles in licensing domestic wind energy projects on land in the Northeast."

—USFWS Regional Director Marvin Moriarty.

Jon Boone’s Maryland Public Service Commission Testimony
The PSC Testimony provides comprehensive information contained within a typical PSC regulatory hearing, and includes a 40-page document of direct testimony covering a range of issues, along with supplementary testimony, as well as important documents such as responses to data requests and various rebuttal and summary commentaries. These should be invaluable to those seeking information about how to engage a regulatory hearing—and for those who simply want a logical and thorough acquaintance with the many and varied aspects of this complicated business.
