Washington Considers Legislation for Renewable Energy

Washington, DC [RenewableEnergyAccess.com] On May 11, U.S. Senator Maria Cantwell (D-WA) introduced legislation to level the playing field for new energy technologies. Her bipartisan bill would help renewable energy compete with fossil fuels by using enhanced tax credits to encourage increased investment in renewable technologies. Cantwell’s legislation would provide predictable federal tax incentives for the construction of energy efficient homes and renewable energy power plants, and encourage broader use of more efficient materials and technologies. The legislation introduced by Cantwell Friday is part of a comprehensive package of bill’s she’s backing to achieve greater energy independence and save consumers money on energy costs.
