Avian Protection Plan

Federal Avian Protection Initiative

The Federal Avian Protection Initiative is an alliance between utility companies, federal agencies and conservation groups to protect migratory, threatened or endangered species from power line interaction. An Avian Protection Plan (APP) is a utility-specific document that delineates a program designed to reduce the operational and avian risks that result from avian interactions with electric utility facilities.

A utility that creates and follows an APP that addresses their specific wildlife outage issues can benefit through:

  • Regulatory Compliance
  • Reliability Improvements
  • Cost Savings
  • Positive Recognition from Regulators and Customers
  • Wildlife and Asset Protection

Kaddas will not only assist utility companies with their Avian Protection Plan implementation, we also offer the most comprehensive line of products to satisfy your specific needs.
