Reports today indicate that President Elect Obama is pushing to double the energy tax credit portion of the stimulus package being prepared by Congress.   The increase could put the tax credit’s total value at $20 – 25 billion.  A large portion of this tax credit package is expected to be allocated to production tax credits for renewable energy; the bill may also extend the expiration date of the renewable energy production tax credits by two years.  Washington Post Article North American Windpower Article  Read Article Here
