 Production Tax Credit ~ Gone with the Wind 



Washington has given tax breaks to wind energy for over 20 years, and the industry clearly has very little to show for it.

Despite the poor performance, Congress is poised to extend it. Currently, lobbyists for the wind industry are roaming the halls of Capitol Hill, trying to convince members of Congress to extend the lavish handouts. That's why they need to hear from you.

Tell your representative to go on record that that he opposes wasteful wind energy subsidies. Urge him to sign Rep. Pompeo's letter.

Right now Rep. Pompeo of Kansas is circulating a letter that calls on his colleagues to oppose extending this wasteful handout for the wind energy industry. This is a great way for House members to go on record that they oppose government meddling in the energy market. A bipartisan group of nearly 40 members have already signed on to the letter, but this group needs to grow if we're to be successful. That's where you come in.

Send an email or a tweet to your member letting him or her know that you oppose using the tax code to prop up inefficient wind energies like wind. Urge them to avoid repeating the mistakes from the past and end this wasteful handout for a favored industry, once and for all. You didn't send him to Washington to extend handouts to special interests, which is why your member should stand with Rep. Pompeo in opposing the wind PTC.

Tell your member to go on record that that he opposes wasteful wind energy subsidies. Urge them to sign Rep. Pompeo's letter.

Thank you for your help!

Sincerely,
