Bat deterrent system

NRG Systems' Bat Deterrent System was developed to help the wind industry mitigate its impact on bat populations. The nacelle-mounted system creates an ultrasonic acoustic field around the rotor-swept area of a turbine which "jams" bat's echolocation capabilities. The animals then leave the treated area in favor of easier to navigate airspace, effectively moving them out of harm's way. Successful trials of the technology have been held in Texas and Illinois, proving it is an effective tool for reducing mortality of certain species of bats caused by wind turbines. NRG's Bat Deterrent System is commercially available in North America.
