ALG urges Congress to allow the Wind Production Tax Credit to expire at the end of the year

July 31, 2019, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement urging Congress to allow the Wind Production Tax Credit to expire at the end of the year:

“Wind energy development is no longer a nascent industry, having grown from 0.7 percent of the grid in 2007 to 6.6 percent in 2018 at 275 billion kWh. The rationale behind the wind production tax credit has always been that it is necessary to attract investors. However, wind energy development has matured to the point where government subsidization of billionaires like Warren Buffett cannot be justified, neither from an energy production standpoint nor a fiscal one. Americans for Limited Government strongly urges Congress to end the Wind Production Tax Credit. The best part is, they only need to do nothing as it expires at the end of the year.”
