The Congressional Research Service released a report September 23 finding that the country’s wind turbine manufacturing industry is partially dependent on federal and state incentives, including a number that are scheduled to expire soon. The report, U.S. Wind Turbine Manufacturing: Federal Support for an Emerging Industry, highlighted the value of the production tax credit, which provides an inflation-adjusted income tax credit of 2.2 cents per kWh for the first 10 years of a project’s operation, and will expire at the end of 2012.
