Other documents:

Apex-Navy curtailment agreement: The US Navy made an agreement with the project applicant Apex Clean Energy, Inc. to avoid conflicts of spinning wind turbines with their Naval Air Warfare Center Weapons Division at China Lake in the California Desert, while conducting sensor tests. When a "clean doppler radar environment" is needed by the Navy, Apex has agreed to curtail wind turbine generators temproarily, and the rotors are locked so they do not move. The spinning blades cause electromegntic interference. The curtailment agreement is for up to 300 hours per year.
