Congress Extends Tax Credits for Solar and Wind Energy

In December 2006, Congress passed a last-minute extension of several tax credits related to renewable energy resources. The one-year extension covers tax credits, set up in the Energy Policy Act of 2005, for the installation of residential and commercial photovoltaic equipment, the construction of energy-efficient buildings, and the production of energy from wind and other renewable sources (see


Vol. 14, No. 9). Originally set to expire in December 2007, these tax credits will now be in place through December 2008.
