The latest reports from the USA highlights that bats are being killed by wind turbines is great numbers. However with small adjustments to the revolution speed we can hugely reduce the number of deaths and cause very little reduction in energy output.
The last report I saw from the UK was by RSPB and indicated that WT’s did not cause anything but minor mortality to bats.
I don’t know which is right or wrong and how much the technology is different say from the States to European models. But its clear we do need to look out for our little friends and rather like Bees understand and rejoice in the work they do for us in reducing insect populations and their effects on crops.
We at LGE would welcome more information and input from anyone or any source that might throw more light on this hugely important matter.
