Momentum is building in the U.S. Senate for legislation that would extend a long list of important, but expiring tax credits. SIW is encouraging the solar industry and its supporters in Washington State to help in a national campaign to pressure the U.S. Senate to extend the Federal Investment Tax Credit (ITC) today. Here’s a brief overview provided by SEIA, the Solar Energy Industries Association, with instructions on how you and your customers can help. Please distribute:
THE NEXT 24 HOURS COULD DECIDE THE FATE OF SOLAR ENERGY IN AMERICA!
We’re fighting hard to make solar energy part of the bill, but we can’t do it alone. This very well could be our only chance this year to get the hugely-successful solar Investment Tax Credit (ITC) extended. If allowed to expire at the end of 2016, as scheduled, many industry experts are predicting “dire consequences” – with U.S. job losses totaling in the tens of thousands – and up to 90 percent of all solar companies going out of business.
