These Guidelines provide information to help reduce impacts to bats and birds from wind energy development in Arizona. They include recommendations on: 1) preliminary screening of proposed wind energy projects, 2) pre‐construction study design and methods, 3) assessing direct, indirect, and cumulative impacts to bats and birds in accordance with state and federal laws, 4) developing avoidance and minimization measures, 5) establishing appropriate mitigation, and 6) post-construction operations monitoring, analysis, and reporting methods.
