AWEA Urges US Congress to Act on Production Tax Credits for the Wind Industry

The American Wind Energy Association (AWEA) is calling on Congress to include an extension of the wind energy Production Tax Credit in any legislation to avoid the “fiscal cliff,” or risk half the jobs in the wind industry if the Production Tax Credit expires Dec. 31.

If Congress doesn’t act this month, a new U.S. manufacturing sector and 37,000 jobs could be lost by the first quarter of 2013.
