The Clean Energy sector stands to benefit from the tax reform bill. However, the bill missed an opportunity to create a level playing field for the industry. While the phase-out schedule of certain renewable energy tax credits was maintained, a series of important “orphaned” tax credits were passed up.
We thank Sen. Rob Portman for supporting clean energy during the tax reform legislative process. But there is more work to do; the orphaned tax credits should be included in additional legislation to create even more jobs and economic growth and strengthen national security. We will be counting on his leadership.
