Washington, DC -The American Council On Renewable Energy (ACORE) applauds the one year extension of the 2.2¢/kWh tax credit for wind that was included in the fiscal cliff deal passed by the House last night. The extension creates more market certainty and includes language that allows renewable energy projects that “start construction” as opposed to being “in service” in 2013 to claim the PTC. This effective change in deadline is critical to the wind industry, as well as the hydropower, geothermal, biomass and waste-to-energy industries as it takes into account the long-term time horizons required to complete projects.
