  • Last December, Congress provided a five-year extension and gradual phase-down of tax incentives for wind and solar, but not for other clean energy technologies that currently qualify for these credits. 
  • Over the last year, nearly 340 businesses and associations from 45 states have urged Senate and House members to extend federal tax incentives for clean energy, most notably the Sec. 48 business investment tax credit (ITC), Sec. 25D residential tax credit, and Sec. 45 production tax credit (PTC). Last December, Congress provided a five-year extension and gradual phase-down of tax incentives for wind and solar, but not for other clean energy technologies that currently qualify for these credits. 
  • The use of these technologies enhances energy independence and security, all the while strengthening the resilience and reliability of the U.S. power grid. 
  • They improve efficiency and reduce long-term costs, while increasing sustainability for homeowners, hospitals, universities, small businesses, as well as Fortune 500 companies.
  • It is also about maintaining and creating thousands of jobs and supporting domestic industries. 
  • Top 5 Reasons to extend the ITC for remaining technologies:
    1. They are highly efficient 
    2. They provide reliable on-site power
    3. They are growing new industries, businesses, and jobs 
    4. They complement America’s fossil fuel industry
    5. They are consistent with an “all of the above” domestic energy strategy
