The long awaited Final 4(d) rule for the Northern Long-Eared Bat (NLEB) was published by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in the Federal Register on January 14, 2016. This new rule helps to clarify some of the requirements for habitat modification (tree-cutting), but it also leaves open questions regarding landowner and developer responsibilities and requirements to meet these rules for obtaining State and Federal Permits. A general question and answer summary sheet has been provided by USFWS.
New England Environmental, Inc. has constructed a 15,800 square foot sustainable office building. In July of 2011 NEE received a LEED Platinum Certification (LEED NC 2.2 - 54 Points).
Our building is powered by a 39 kW photovoltaic array, generating enough electricity to power most of our electric, heating and cooling needs.
