Take Action: Ask Your Senators and Representatives to Support Wind Energy in the Southeast!

 

 

The Southeast has significant wind energy potential, and it must be further utilized. Legislators can help advance our region’s wind industry by adopting smart, dependable, and stable energy policies.

Take a minute to urge your elected officials to support strong federal policies that will boost the American Wind Industry!

Wind energy has the opportunity to improve the economy while producing reliable, clean, renewable energy that is able to meet growing energy demands. In order for the wind industry to continue to grow, stable and dependable federal policies must be passed. The Production Tax Credit (PTC) has greatly helped expand the wind industry by providing cost-effective wind to energy users, creating strong incentives for wind developers, and generating a more equitable cost-competitive energy market. Yet, the PTC is set to expire at the end of 2013. This short-term extension hinders long-term progress and threatens thousands of American jobs. Additional policies, including Master Limited Partnerships (MLP’s), the Investment Tax Credit (ITC), and Renewable Portfolio Standards (RPS) are needed in the Southeast in order to create a more secure and low-cost wind energy market.

Please send a letter today urging your representatives and senators to support policies that are favorable to wind energy development.
