ACORE: House Extenders Package a “Modest Start”

Extenders Mark Missing Energy Storage ITC and Other Achievable Climate Priorities

Statement from Gregory Wetstone, President and CEO of the American Council on Renewable Energy (ACORE):

“The House Ways and Means Committee extenders mark is a modest start to a really important near-term opportunity. While an extra year of the wind PTC and renewal of the orphan renewable technologies are to be welcomed, this year’s extenders process should not conclude without the inclusion of a tax credit for energy storage and other critical measures to help combat climate change and decarbonize the grid.”
