The extension of wind energy tax credits as part of the ‘fiscal cliff’ bill is good news for wind farm developers in northwest Indiana.
E-on Climate and Renewables completed the first of four phases of what could eventually be the largest wind farm in North America last fall. The tax credits will benefit both E-on, and juwi, which is constructing a wind farm in Tipton County.
A release from E-on says its Tipton and Madison County wind farm can provide electricity for more than 60,000 households.
According to a recent report from the Department of Energy, by 2030, about 20-percent of American energy could come from wind power.
