The American Wind Energy Association welcomed the extension of the wind-energy Production Tax Credit under the "fiscal cliff" bill signed into law by President Barack Obama. The extension, while not a long-term policy solution, at least prevents an abrupt end to the tax incentive. "Now we can continue to provide America with more clean, affordable, homegrown energy, and keep growing a new manufacturing sector that's now making nearly 70% of our wind turbines in the U.S.," said Rob Gramlich, AWEA's interim CEO.
