Avian Protection Plan (APP) Guidelines

The Edison Electric Institute's Avian Power Line Interaction Committee (APLIC) and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) jointly prepared the Avian Protection Plan (APP) Guidelines.

The voluntary principles presented in the document can be used to develop an APP specific to the needs of a utility or wind energy developer.

Developing an APP is recommended in the Guidelines for Avoiding, Minimizing, and Mitigating Impacts of Wind Energy on Biodiversity in Nebraska to help identify and minimize the risks to migratory and resident birds.
