Statement from Gregory Wetstone, President and CEO of the American Council on Renewable Energy (ACORE)
Washington, D.C.,: “We applaud the more than 100 House members on this letter for their leadership. As the signatories note, providing long-term certainty for clean energy tax incentives would allow the U.S. to achieve its carbon reduction goals while dramatically boosting clean energy jobs, U.S. investment in electric generation and our global position as a renewable energy leader.
“Clarifying the tax code for energy storage technologies is also a critical piece of the puzzle that would have technology-neutral benefits.
“We look forward to working with Chairman Neal to realize the national benefits that would stem from enactment of these measures.”
