Bat Protection:

  • The Criterion Wind Project is sited within the habitat of the endangered Indiana Bat. Criterion has applied to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) to obtain an "Incidental Take Permit" (ITP) that would allow the project to continue operating within carefully specified environmental limits. No Final ITP has yet been issued, but the current draft ITP released by the USFWS in July, 2012 would allow Criterion to harm ("take") no more than 14 endangered bats over its 21 year lifetime.
