ACORE Statement on Treasury Letter Extending Safe Harbor Deadlines

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Following is a statement from Gregory Wetstone, President and CEO of the American Council on Renewable Energy (ACORE), on the recently publicized letter from the Treasury Department to Senator Charles Grassley (R-IA) that commits to “modify” safe harbor rules for renewable energy projects:

“We are encouraged by the Treasury Department’s letter announcing its intent to modify time-sensitive safe harbor deadlines for renewable energy tax incentives. Extending these deadlines would be immensely helpful as the renewable sector has been hit hard these last couple of months by supply chain disruptions, shelter-in-place orders and other significant pandemic-related delays. We look forward to further detail on this critical issue, and extend our appreciation to the Treasury Department for their work in this area, which can help the renewable sector continue as a key economic driver through this downturn, and an effective climate solution over the long haul.”
