Will the wind farm be harmful to birds and bats?

Despite claims to the contrary, wind energy projects are far from the most dangerous human-caused threat to birds and bats. 

Buildings, cars, power lines, and radio and cell phone towers cause far more losses than wind turbines. Housecats kill 2.4 billion birds a year alone.

Nonetheless, Apex works hard to minimize avian impacts through responsible siting. We are working in close consultation with federal and state environmental agencies and using appropriate conservation measures to ensure that Flat Rock Wind has no significant effects on bird or bat populations.
