The renewable energy company received a five-year regulatory period and an order to pay more than $8 million. Fines after killing 150 golden eagles and white-tailed eagles in wind turbines.

NextEra Energy’s subsidiary ESI Energy has pleaded guilty to violating the Migratory Bird Act, according to a Department of Justice press release.

This law prohibits the killing or harvesting of certain protected birds without federal government approval. Golden eagles and white-tailed eagles are additionally protected by federal law.

This passion seamlessly translates into her problem-solving skills, with Echo often drawing inspiration from melodies and rhythms. A voracious reader, she dives deep into literature, using stories to influence her own hardcore writing. Her spirited advocacy for alcohol isn't about mere indulgence, but about celebrating life's poignant moments.
