It’s a big week for clean energy in Congress. Here’s another big action alert, this one from the American Wind Energy Association (AWEA), followed by an informational video on the bottom:
Yesterday, Senators Bennet (D-CO) and Moran (R-KS) introduced an amendment to the Small Business Jobs and Tax Relief Act, S. 2237, that would extend the renewable energy Production Tax Credit (PTC) as well as the Investment Tax Credit (ITC) for two years.
As you know, our main challenge has been to get our Senators to bring the PTC up for a vote. We now have a window of opportunity to see that vote through. To make it happen, we need Congress to support the PTC amendment to the small business bill.
If you are not familiar with the PTC and would like to read more about it before contacting Congress, please visit SaveUSAWindJobs.com.
Thank you for your efforts to reach out to your Senators at this key moment.
