Legislation to extend incentives would support economic growth and innovation

To create jobs, invest capital, and deploy pollution-reducing technologies, the clean energy industry needs stable, predictable federal tax policy.

Transparent, long-term, and reliable federal policies, such as the investment tax credit and the production tax credit, provide critical incentives to private investors.
