The House tax bill is trying to raise taxes on wind energy. As a wind energy supporter, I urge you to contact your House representative today.
In 2015, Congress reached a bipartisan deal that phased out the wind energy Production Tax Credit over five years. Investors took Congress at their word that there would be stable tax policy and poured billions of dollars into the U.S. economy. Wind energy grew, as did the jobs, community, and environmental benefits that came with it.
Now, with two years left in the tax credit phase-down, Congress has reneged on their promise to support clean wind energy. Changing the rules in the middle of the game would be disastrous for American workers building wind turbines and farmers and ranchers harvesting the wind.
