The American Wind Energy Association released a video Friday featuring Allsup family from Texas and how they benefit from the renewable-energy Production Tax Credit. Matt Allsup is the senior operations manager at the Lone Star wind farm in Abilene, Texas. AWEA says 37,000 Americans in the wind energy industry like him will find their jobs at risk should Congress fail to extend the PTC by the end of the year. "Behind the windmills there's families, and behind those families we need jobs," daughter Tiffany Allsup says in the video.
