PacifiCorp, one of the utilities owned by Berkshire Hathaway Inc. (BRK/A)’s energy unit, agreed to pay $2.5 million to settle charges that its wind facilities in Wyoming killed eagles and other birds.
The deaths near the Seven Mile Hill and Glenrock/Rolling Hills wind farms violated the Migratory Bird Treaty Act, according to a statement today from the utility. PacifiCorp said it will pay $400,000 in fines, $200,000 in restitution to the Wyoming Game and Fish Department and $1.9 million to the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation to help protect golden eagles near the facilities.
Good. I hope they continue fining nice Warren Buffett and other owners of wind farms which remain cuisenaires for birds, and also drive people mad who have the misfortune to live nearby.Back to top
