Environmental Impact

An Environmental Impact Assessment, or EIA, is a rigorous, lengthy and comprehensive process requiring experts in various fields, including ecology, landscape, hydrology, noise, ground conditions, archaeology, transportation and construction.

These expert assessors evaluate the current environmental conditions at the site.  They assess how the proposed wind farm will affect the environment, and whether any resultant changes in conditions are deemed acceptable or unacceptable.

The assessors refer to prevailing legislation and use best practice guidelines wherever such guidelines exist, calling upon the numerous local, regional and central government policies on such matters.
