Thank Congress for Extending Wind Energy Tax Credit (Jan. 2, 2013)

posted Jan 2, 2013, 11:36 AM by Rob Hogg

You may not have seen it, but Congress extended the wind energy production tax credit for one year in the agreement on the so-called fiscal cliff.

This is big news because it keeps our renewable electricity industries going for another year and because it shows Congress can work together to get things done for our energy future.  It also gives us a year to educate the public and our Congressional representatives about the national security and air pollution benefits of homegrown renewable energy.  In 2013, Congress should make the tax credit permanent to reflect the real economic, environmental, and national security benefits of homegrown renewable energy.

Please call our Congressional representatives and Senators today to thank them for passing the extension.  Here are their phone numbers:

Congressman Bruce Braley, 319-287-3233

Congressman Tom Latham, 866-428-5642

Congressman Dave Loebsack, 319-351-0789

Congressman Steve King, 712-224-4692

Senator Chuck Grassley, 515-288-1145

Senator Tom Harkin, 515-284-4574

Thanks again for your calls, and let's build on this momentum.
