For the economy. For the environment. For America.
Victory! With the support of thousands of Sierra Club members and supporters, Congress voted to extend the Production Tax Credit (PTC), an important financing provision for wind energy. This means more clean energy jobs and cleaner air for all Americans.
The wind industry supports more than 75,000 American-made jobs around the country, and the passage of the PTC will protect these jobs and the families they support.
The Wind Works campaign launched TV and online ads calling out targeted members of Congress to pass the PTC, including Rep. Farenthold of Texas, Rep. Latta of Ohio, Rep. Shuster and Rep. Barletta of Pennsylvania, Rep. Heck of Nevada, and Rep. Guinta of New Hampshire.
The Wind Works campaign launched billboards in the Washington, DC metro station on Capitol Hill, shown right, urging all members of Congress to take action to extend the PTC.
The Wind Works campaign also launched billboards in Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Minnesota, calling on targeted members of Congress to pass the PTC and protect 37,000 American wind jobs.
Take Action for a Cleaner Tomorrow
The passage of the PTC is a huge victory for our economy and our environment, but our work for a cleaner tomorrow isn't finished yet. Tell President Obama to pass new clean air standards that protect our lungs from coal pollution, and open the way for more clean energy like wind.
