​The Energy and Wildlife Action Coalition ("EWAC") submits these comments in response to the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s ("FEMA") draft nationwide programmatic environmental impact statement (“NPEIS”) evaluating the environmental impacts of proposed modifications to the National Flood Insurance Program (“NFIP”).1

EWAC is a national coalition formed in 2014 whose members consist of electric utilities, electric transmission providers, and renewable energy entities operating throughout the United States, and related trade associations. The fundamental goals of EWAC are to evaluate, develop, and promote sound environmental policies for federally protected wildlife and closely related natural resources while ensuring the continued generation and transmission of reliable and affordable electricity. EWAC supports public policies, based on sound science, that protect wildlife and natural resources in a reasonable, consistent, and cost-effective manner. FULL FILING
