Senate Committee Agrees to End Wind Tax Credit

The move to end the zero-emissions tax credit took a step closer to reality on Wednesday as the Senate Appropriations Committee voted to end the credit early. The Oklahoman’s Paul Monies writes House Bill 2298 would end the credit on July 1, instead of the original sunset of January 1, 2021. Some raised concerns about current wind farm projects being unfinished if the credit ended early.

    Great news and long over-due! Windfarms in CA for about 50-years are still subsidized and never reached profitability! When the tax credits expire, all wind farms struggle. Records are very negative and when you add in the noise and bird kills….well, it’s really pathetic.

    Ending wind credits can’t come soon enough for my taste.

    It’s about time! Wind needs to stand on its own…wind proponents LIE about the benefits…

    The future of Oklahoma energy is oil, gas and renewables such as wind and solar. The wind industry will continue to be a major component of Oklahoma’s energy sector in the days, months and years ahead and that is good for all Oklahomans.
