Clean Energy: "Wind Works" Campaign
Yesterday the Sierra Club launched "Wind Works," a new campaign to advocate for renewal of the Production Tax Credit (PTC) for wind energy. The PTC is a federal tax policy that helps level the playing field by providing the certainty the wind industry needs for continued growth.
"The 'Wind Works' campaign is the Sierra Club's latest step in putting resources toward advocating for renewable energy jobs and ensuring America transitions to a clean energy economy," said Dave Hamilton, Director of Clean Energy at the Sierra Club.
