The National Governors Association has written a letter to congressional leaders in support of extending several key renewable energy incentives, including the production tax credit (PTC) and the investment tax credit (ITC) for wind power.

They also encouraged the implementation of an ITC for the first 3 GW of offshore wind energy put into service.

‘Creating jobs and securing our energy future must be a priority at both the state and federal levels,’ they wrote. ‘We strongly urge you to partner with states to support these industries as they continue to develop by passing legislation on a bipartisan basis to extend expiring renewable production and investment tax credits.’
