CASE has written letters to several lawmakers in California, urging them to support the extension of the wind energy Production Tax Credit to spur private investment leading to new jobs and more local economic activity.
The tax credit, which costs between $2-3 billion, has driven more than $10-20 billion in private sector investment. It currently benefits 420 manufacturing facilities and directly supports 75,000 jobs across the U.S. The Production Tax Credit is instrumental in growing an industry committed to reducing our dependence on foreign energy supplies. This investment in clean energy technology is good policy for our national economy, security, and homegrown manufacturing jobs.
