New Database Assists with Wind Project Siting

New Database Assists with Wind Project Siting

Date: 11/22/2011

The U.S. Department of Defense and the Natural Resources Defense Council created the Renewable Energy and Defense Geospatial Database, a mapping and analytic tool to help project developers identify possible barriers to a proposed project location, including nearby military bases, radar installations, missile silos, and flight paths. The database also shows endangered or threatened wildlife species near the proposed project site. The system will be free to developers if they sign a licensing agreement with the Natural Resources Defense Council.
