Senator Wyden: Restore support for wind power!

An aggrressive lobbying campaign by the Koch Brothers and their allies in Congress ended a vital program crucial to the success of wind power and other sources of renewable energy. But it's not too late to renew the renewable energy Production Tax Credit (PTC). In fact, there is growing momentum across the country for an extension of the wind tax credit -- a bipartisan coalition of Iowa state senators just called on Congress to extend the PTC.

We have a fresh opportunity to restore the PTC when Senator Ron Wyden (D-OR), a strong supporter of clean energy, takes over as chair of the Senate Finance Committee. 

Tell Senator Wyden to work for extension of the renewable energy PTC right away when he becomes chair of the Senate Finance Committee. 

 

The Petition

A letter with your signature and comments will be delivered to incoming U.S. Senate Finance Committee Chairman Ron Wyden

Please work to extend the renewable energy PTC right away as the new chair of the Senate Finance Committee. 

The PTC helps wind energy compete with the highly subsidized, carbon-polluting fossil fuel industry, attracts investors for new wind projects, fosters innovation, and employs tens of thousands of Americans. 

The decision on whether to extend the wind PTC is a crucial test for Congress that will impact the type of world our children inherit. Will Congress continue to favor industries that increase carbon pollution, fueling climate-related disasters? Or, will Congress take action to promote safe, clean energy that will allow us to stabilize the climate?

Your leadership as the new Senate Finance Committee Chair in prioritizing and championing renewal of the renewable energy PTC can have a major impact on getting past the partisan gridlock that is jeopardizing this vital support for wind energy.

There is growing momentum across the country for an extension of the wind tax credit. A bipartisan coalition of Iowa state senators recently voted unanimously for a resolution calling on Congress to extend the PTC.

The choice for our children and grandchildren is clear: Please exert your leadership to renew the renewable energy Production Tax Credit.

Sincerely,
