APLIC has produced a document, Developing Power Pole Modification Agreements for Compensatory Eagle Mitigation for Wind Energy Projects, intended to provide considerations and guidance for electric utilities, wind companies, and agencies working on power pole modification agreements for compensatory mitigation for eagle take at wind facilities.

APLIC Participates in Trumpeter Swan Society Conference
APLIC was a sponsor and led a session on avian interactions with power lines and associated infrastructure, including methods to minimize swan/power line collisions at the 23rd Trumpeter Swan Society Conference/5th International Swan Symposium.

An Avian Protection Plan, or APP, is a voluntary, utility-specific program to reduce the operational and avian risks that result from avian interactions with electric utility facilities. Although each utility’s APP will be different, the overall goal of reducing avian mortality is the same. APPs are “living documents” that are continually evaluated and refined over time. APP Guidelines were jointly released by APLIC and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in 2005. These Guidelines offer resources for developing an APP.
