Allowing the renewable-energy Production Tax Credit to expire at the end of 2012 would further the "boom-and-bust" cycle for U.S. wind power, according to Tulsi Tanti, chairman and managing director of Suzlon Energy.

Until Congress extends the PTC, the market for 2013 "has a question mark over it," the American Wind Energy Association said.
