Md. wind project sued over bats
Maryland's first industrial wind project faced yet another stumbling block Wednesday, reported the Baltimore Sun, as conservationists filed suit to block the start of the project, saying it would threaten rare, federally protected bats.
The wind project by Constellation Energy, which is to build turbines atop Maryland's highest mountain in Garrett County, has faced criticism from environmentalists from the start. Now two groups — Save Western Maryland and the Maryland Conservation Council — and two individuals have brought suit against Constellation Energy in U.S. District Court in Greenbelt. They contend that the project's wind turbines will "almost certainly" injure or kill Indiana bats.
