Statement from Gregory Wetstone, President and CEO of the American Council on Renewable Energy (ACORE)
"A federal tax credit for energy storage would have a transformative impact on America's economy, promoting private sector investment and helping monetize the value of energy storage technology. Energy storage improves grid flexibility and provides a wide range of services that enhance reliability and resilience, while enabling greater renewable energy integration.
"We commend Senators Heinrich and Gardner, along with the bill co-sponsors, for re-introducing this important bipartisan legislation and look forward to working with them to enact it as soon as possible."
The American Council on Renewable Energy (ACORE) is a national nonprofit organization that unites finance, policy and technology to accelerate the transition to a renewable energy economy.
