GMP awarded bat permit for Lowell Mountain

Posted: Updated:
LOWELL, Vt. -

The Lowell Mountain Wind Project is allowed to accidentally kill up to seven endangered or threatened bats a year.

The Agency of Natural Resources granted Green Mountain Power the permit, saying that number of bats would not be biologically significant as long as efforts were made to help save colonies.

The Caledonian-Record reports the utility will have to pay about $18,000 a year to do that and will hire a consultant to look for dead bats under the turbines.
