The Tea Party has weakened the clout of the wind lobby, and imperiled the industry's prized political possession -- a billion-dollar "Production Tax Credit."
Leaked documents show how the lobby is trying to adapt to Republican power.
The American Wind Energy Association's 2011 annual report and related documents were quietly posted on the Internet last week by a wind power opponent upset by windmills' negative impact on birds.
The documents show the lobby's efforts to frame its opponents as tax hikers, and to use opposition research against subsidy critics, some of whom it classifies as "libertarian free-market fundamentalists."
I uploaded a copy of the leaked document that was highlighted in this story to my Scribed account.
