AWEA statement on Senate Finance Chairman's Energy Tax Discussion Draft

Wind energy has already proven that it can deliver in these areas and it must continue to be a critical part of the U.S. energy mix.

December 18, 2013


Rob Gramlich, Senior Vice President for Public Policy of the American Wind Energy Association, today released the following statement:

"We commend Chairman Baucus and the Senate Finance Committee for putting forward a sound policy option to provide domestic energy producers with stability for the years to come. The tax code has a century-long history of incentivizing American-made energy, and we must continue to ensure that we have plentiful, secure, clean, affordable energy to power our economy. Wind energy has already proven that it can deliver in these areas and it must continue to be a critical part of the U.S. energy mix. We appreciate Senator Baucus' leadership in trying to find common ground to ensure that the U.S. is well-suited to face the energy challenges of the 21st century by promoting a diverse energy portfolio."
