It provides power to a nearby motorhome.<br/><br/>August 2003, a bat was found decapitated adjacent to Windcharger. Over the next month about five more dead bats were found in the garden, some with apparent injuries, others not.<br/><br/>September 2004, a stunned bat was found in the garden, then a dead bat found the next day (presumably the same one?) with an injury inside its ear.<br/><br/>September 2004, a pipistrelle bat was seen flying into the Windcharger blades; its wings were so badly injured that it had to be put down. September 2004, the Windcharger was taken down when the owner noticed bat(s) swooping around Windcharger.<br/><br/>The owner has since constructed a cage around the Windcharger, but has found the energy generation severely compromised as a result.<br/><br/>Early 2005 a small wind turbine was attached to a National Trust for Scotland visitor centre that is 10 miles from Moffat. The building is in the uplands, and the nearest woodland is 600 metres away. A male pipistrelle hibernated in the centre during the winter.<br/><br/>30th May 2005 a male Pipistrellus pygmaeus was found dead directly below the turbine. No obvious cause of death, the finder considers the bat must have hit the turbine.<br/><br/>A wind turbine was installed in the middle of Shorne Wood Country Park in Kent in March 2006. The site is within ancient woodland and is a SSSI. Rangers have surveyed underneath the turbine every day since the turbine&rsquo;s installation and up to October 2006 have only found one dead pipistrelle bat the night after particularly strong winds.<br/><br/>In June 2007 a dead bat (pipistrelle?) was found on a houseboat installed with a Rusland 918 mini turbine. The boat was moored on the Lancaster Canal. The mini turbine is now &lsquo;tethered&rsquo; between dusk and dawn between April and September inclusive to avoid further mortality.<br/><br/>11th July 2006, bird observation, a pigeon was observed flying into a micro-turbine at Harehope Quarry. The bird&rsquo;s wing was cut off, it lost an eye and received other major trauma to its head and body. The bird was put down.)<br/><br/>Moffat<br/><br/>Kent<br/><br/>Lancashire<br/><br/>(Durham<br/><br/>June 2007<br/><br/></span></TD><TD valign='top'><p>Image | Micro-turbine bat mortality incidents, received by the Bat Conservation Trust</p><BR><BR><img src='../images/micro-turbine-bat-mortality-incidents-received-by-bat-conservation-trust-001.jpg' alt='micro-turbine-bat-mortality-incidents-received-by-bat-conservation-trust ' style='margin-left:20px;border-style:solid;border-width:1px;border-color:black;'> </TD></TR></TABLE><table border=1px solid blackstyle =width:50%> <tr> <td><b>Capstone Turbine For Sale </b>- Microturbine C30 C65 C200 C600 C800 C1000 - <a href="http://www.globalmicroturbine.com">Go to microturbine website</a> </td> </tr> </tr> </table> <p> </p> <script> (function(i,s,o,g,r,a,m){i['GoogleAnalyticsObject']=r;i[r]=i[r]||function(){ (i[r].q=i[r].q||[]).push(arguments)},i[r].l=1*new Date();a=s.createElement(o), m=s.getElementsByTagName(o)[0];a.async=1;a.src=g;m.parentNode.insertBefore(a,m) })(window,document,'script','https://www.google-analytics.com/analytics.js','ga'); ga('create', 'UA-85515761-1', 'auto'); ga('send', 'pageview'); </script><address> <p>Search Engine Contact: <a href="mailto:greg@globalmicroturbine.com?subject="Microturbine">greg@globalmicroturbine.com</a></p><p><br /></p></body></html>
