The American Wind Energy Association is working to get a renewable-energy Production Tax Credit extension included in a larger tax package expected in Congress in the weeks ahead. Rob Gramlich, AWEA's senior vice president of public policy, said one possibility for such a rider is the American Renewable Energy Production Tax Credit Extension Act, which was introduced in November. "We've made extending the wind PTC our top focus this year. We're working with a broad coalition to encourage the leadership of both parties to include the PTC in the payroll tax cut extension when it comes up next month," Gramlich added.
