Call On Congress to Boost Wind Energy

Though the Production Tax Credit (PTC) for wind energy expired at the end of 2013, members of Congress are working to bring it back. Tell your reps to revive the PTC»

Restoring the PTC will protect American wind installation and manufacturing jobs, keep the US competitive in the worldwide clean energy market, reduce US greenhouse gas emissions, and prevent air and water pollution from coal and natural gas.


On March 21, 144 representatives and senators sent letters to their colleagues urging the PTC's renewal. Green America has pushed for the PTC to be extended for the past two years. Since it's now expired, it's urgent for Congress to move this forward and renew the credit.

"Like all businesses, the wind industry seeks certainty and predictability so that long-term project decisions and investments can be made," wrote Sens. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) and Mark Udall (D-Colo.), along with 24 other senators. "Without that stability, we once again risk losing many of the jobs, infrastructure and investment that the wind industry has created."
