Wind power developers in Kern County, Calif., are reviving projects after the wind-energy Production Tax Credit won a last-minute extension in Congress. "Together we can celebrate the renewal of this important federal policy that supports an industry that installed the most electrical generating capacity in America last year," said Linda Parker of the Kern Wind Energy Association. However, the industry may see a slump in the first half of the year because the PTC was not approved earlier, said Buddy Cummings, CEO of World Wind & Solar.
