NREL was to issue a request for proposals in late December or early January for studying how to reduce bird kills. The grant on offer is available to US wind developers or operating companies with access to at least 200 operating turbines, in partnership with scientific, bird or wildlife organisations. Six to eight awards are anticipated for the one to two year study, possibly of $50,000 to $100,000 each, says NREL's Neil Wikstrom. He stresses, however, that the size of the grant is as yet uncertain. A report that awards might be $100,000 to $200,000 each if funding allows is inaccurate, he adds.
