Senator Tom Carper (D-DE) said January 31 that he will soon reintroduce legislation to provide wind project developers a 30 percent investment tax credit to accelerate electricity production from offshore wind turbines. The measure would mirror his Incentivizing Offshore Wind Power Act (S. 1397), which he introduced in July 2011 with Senator Olympia Snowe (R-ME). Like that proposal, the new language would offer the credit to the first 3,000 MW of offshore wind electricity production.
