|« Who Pays for Solar Power?||Here's to a Sunny 2013! »|
Though not strictly speaking a solar news story, we are pleased to note that the “fiscal cliff” deal agreed to last night by the House includes provisions from the Senate that will preserve federal tax credits for wind power systems. You can read more about it over at Renewable Energy World, “Wind Energy Tax Credit Extension Passes with Fiscal Cliff Deal.“
Of course, the extension is relatively short term and it begs the question of what will happen with the solar ITC which is presently scheduled to expire at the end of 2016. Still, anytime support for renewable energy - be it wind or solar - passes Congress, it is grounds for rejoicing. Here’s hoping that this is only the first of many legislative victories in 2013.
