January 2012 was a really good month for wind power across America and in Pennsylvania.
Nationally January 2012 wind generation was up 54.8%, compared to January 2011. In Pennsylvania wind generation rose from January 2011 to 2012 by 59.6%. All data from the EIA.
Discussion in Congress about an extension of the wind production tax credit that expires at the end of 2012 continues. The delay in Congressional action has already causes project delays for 2013 and some avoidable job loss. Recently the idea of linking the extension of the production tax credit to a phase out date has been floated.
