The Governors’ Wind Energy Coalition sent a letter last week to President Obama asking that he work with Congress to extend for seven years the production tax credit and investment tax credit. The PTC, which expires at the end of 2012, provides an income tax credit of 2.2 cents per kilowatt-hour for electricity from utility-scale wind turbines, and the investment tax credit provides a thirty percent credit through Section 1603 of the Recovery Act. The 24 governors also requested that the administration establish a Council on Environmental Quality-led intergovernmental state-federal task force on wind energy development.
