Bats are worth billions to the agriculture industry due to their natural control of pests. Unfortunately, wind power poses a risk to bats due to the potential for them to be struck by spinning turbine blades.

EPRI is working with We Energies to demonstrate a specialized technology that uses ultrasonic microphones to detect the presence of bats. If the microphones pick up the high-pitched squeaks and clicks bats make, the turbines will automatically shut down and restart when the bats are out of range.

The project is focused on reducing bat mortality at wind farms while avoiding long-term curtailments and maximizing electricity production.
