On April 16, the House Science, Space, and Technology Subcommittees on Energy and Oversight held a joint hearing on federal incentives for wind energy, focusing on a recent Government Accountability Office (GAO) report. The report found that the incentives for wind energy totaled $4 billion in Fiscal Year 2011, and that there was duplication and overlapping of federal incentives. American Wind Energy Association (AWEA) interim CEO Rob Gramlich responded that only two of the 82 incentives identified by the report were specifically for wind energy. Republicans on the committee encouraged the phase out of one incentive, the production tax credit (PTC), which provides 2.3 cents per kilowatt hour. AWEA has produced a proposal for a six year phase-out, but opponents of the PTC support its expiration at the end of 2013.
