Wind-energy tax credit extended for one year

Congress late Tuesday voted to extend a tax credit on wind energy that many said was key to the survival of the wind-power industry.

The credit's one-year extension was included in the measure to avert the fiscal cliff.

The credit saves 2.2 cents per kilowatt-hour of energy produced over 10 years by new wind-energy facilities.

As approved by Congress Tuesday, the extended credit will apply to projects begun in 2013 but not operational until 2014.

US Battery - Solar RE L16XC Renewable Energy Battery

Our batteries have Xtreme thick plates with (XC Diamond Plate Technology) added to them. They have been designed for hours of heavy discharge each day, followed by a fast recharge during the daylight hours. Very few batteries can take the grueling deep discharge-recharge cycle every day for long periods of time. U.S. Battery has proven time and time again that our solar battery line can stand up to this type of battery torture day in and day out for years to come. When you demand reliable energy storage count on U.S. Battery every time!
