Extend the Federal Clean Energy Tax Credits

The Long-term Extension and Modification of Renewable Energy Production Tax Credit bill will expire December 31, 2009, if the Senate does not vote to extend it further. It has been voted on or attempted to pass eight times. McCain failed to show up to vote all eight times, including one time when the bill failed by one vote and McCain was in Washington DC and could have easily participated. Obama voted to extend the bill three times.

Why is this a big deal?

Aside from obvious reasons, the biggest concentrated solar project, on paper, in the world is ready to go, outside of Phoenix Arizona. This massive undertaking will employ as many as 2,000 people and use as much steel as it took to build the Golden Gate Bridge.

We have one more shot at passing a long-term extension of the critical federal clean energy tax credits. Please call or email your Senators today to urge them to vote YES on S. 3335, which includes an 8 year extension of the commercial and residential solar tax credit, and doubles the residential cap to $4,000.
