"US Senators Join Push For Solar Tax Credit Extension"

"US senators have pushed solar incentives into the spotlight one year ahead of the presidential election, urging policymakers to extend federal support.   

The planned phase-down of investment tax credits (ITC) starting this year should be delayed at least until the US can pass alternative incentives for clean energy, according to a letter penned by 20 US Democratic senators, including presidential hopefuls Elizabeth Warren and Kamala Harris.

“We are … concerned about the impact on jobs if the ITC decreases at the very moment it’s needed most,” the 19 June letter said, noting that the wind-down would kick in while the US continues to lack major federal programmes to foster renewables and discourage fossil fuels."
