The American Wind Energy Association called for bipartisan support of legislation in the House of Representatives to extend the renewable-energy Production Tax Credit. Allowing the PTC to expire at the end of the year would cost 37,000 industry-linked jobs in the U.S., according to a study commissioned by AWEA. "Wind power has truly been an American success story. It's brought $15 billion annually in private investment to the U.S. We have a lot riding on this, not just as an industry, but as a country," said AWEA CEO Denise Bode.
