The American Wind Energy Association (AWEA) has issued a statement in response to the House Ways and Means Committee’s introduction of H.R. 3301, a tax extenders package that would prolong expired tax credits or credits expiring in 2019.
The proposed package would include the wind energy Production Tax Credit, extending the PTC for one year.
“Chairman Neal is proposing a general tax extenders package, with all expired credits or credits expiring this year moving forward another year,” said Bree Raum, Vice President, Federal Affairs with AWEA. “As Congress considers clean energy tax policy, we encourage parity between technologies to boost competition and meet consumer demand for clean energy at the lowest possible cost.”
Raum added: “Accordingly, we would support tax extender policies that move toward that level playing field.”
