In order to accomplish the ultimate goal of smart, clean energy for the world of today, the Mariah project will also assess and evaluate potential and probable impact on the environment. Environmental impact studies will be conducted both to meet requirements and to contribute to the Mariah project's intent to make the world a better place.
Scandia Wind Southwest is working closely with state and local agencies both to define areas which need to be studied and to develop study plans to be implemented over the next several years. Wildlife studies will include pre-construction, construction, and post-construction elements to evaluate impact of the project. We are also engaging research teams from SWCA Environmental Consultants who will assist in the design and implementation of these studies.
