Incoming President and CEO Greg Wetstone praises legislation for renewable energy
For Immediate Release – December 16, 2015
Washington D.C. – In response to today's joint tax extenders-omnibus deal, reached in an overwhelming bipartisan manner by both the House and Senate, ACORE's leadership applauded the deal for renewable energy.
“Congress is taking an important step forward with their agreement to extend the tax credits for renewable energy. The tax package provides critical policy certainty for the solar and wind energy sectors with phase-down schedules that provide vital guidance for business and investment planning,” said Gregory Wetstone, incoming President and CEO at the American Council On Renewable Energy (ACORE). “This is essential progress, but there is more work to be done in support of other renewable energy technologies whose credits were not extended past 2016.”
