Tell Congress to Support Wind Power!

The renewable energy Production Tax Credit (PTC) has been a major driver of the growth of wind power in the United States. However, the PTC is in jeopardy, and is set to expire by the end of this year, unless it is renewed by Congress.

Government support for wind is crucial. Keeping the PTC in place could create 54,000 jobs in the U.S., including 46,000 manufacturing jobs. The PTC will also help to make the United States a leading manufacturer of wind power and keep the US competitive in the worldwide clean energy market. It is also vital to reducing US greenhouse gas emissions and preventing air and water pollution from coal and natural gas.

Tell Congress today that we need to renew the PTC.



Subject: Congress, support wind power! (this doesn't actually go to Congress)

Dear Member of Congress:

I urge you to pass legislation that provides a long-term extension of the Production Tax Credit (PTC). The PTC is a major job creator and will help to ensure that the United States remains competitive in the increasingly important field of wind power.

Keeping the PTC in place will send the message to markets to continue investment in wind power, helping to create tens of thousands of new jobs. Without the PTC, the United States will lose these vital jobs to other nations.

Wind power benefits people across the country – from the coasts to the heartland, from the largest cities to the smallest towns. Wind power is already cheaper in many parts of the country than other sources of energy. Continued investment will make sure more Americans have access to inexpensive, renewable wind energy.

Thank you for your consideration,
