Purchase a Skystream 3.7, get up to $4,000 in tax incentives

Southwest Windpower, a leading manufacturer of small scale wind turbines such as the SkyStream 3.7 grid tie wind power system played a huge role in the passage of the new legislation which offers a federal tax credit for qualified small scale wind turbines. The landmark legislation was part of the economic bailout bill passed in early October 2008 and is a major leap for small wind industry because this is the first federal incentive for small wind power systems since 1985. The Investment Tax Credit (ITC) for small scale wind will be available for wind generators installed through 2016 and will give the small scale wind power system owner up to $4,000 federal tax credit. Andy Kruse, founder of Southwest Windpower fought tirelessly in congress to make sure Small Scale Wind Power Systems were included in the extension of the renewable energy ITC. The result of the legislation’s success will provide thousands of new jobs and harbor an environment which would generate a 40% annual growth rate of the small scale wind industry. To you, the person who is considering a small scale wind turbine like the Skystream 3.7 the new tax credit reduces the total upfront cost of installing a small scale wind power system, making the technology more affordable for people in the USA. What do you think about this legislation? Will it entice you to produce your own clean...

Senator favors big oil over renewable energy

The root problem of our energy problems are due to Senators who we have elected to represent the people, who turn against the people and represent special interests. A great example of a Senator who has his head shoved up his you know what is Nevada’s Republican senator John Ensign. John has launched an opposition against the solar energy lobbyist who are trying to get the renewable energy tax credit, which is set to expire at the end of this year extended. The Senator has an extremely bad voting record towards extending the federal tax credits for people who buy renewable energy for their home or business. The loss of this tax credit can cause the whole industry to collapse, put billions of dollars of investment at risk and put hundreds of thousands of people in the solar and wind industry out of a job in 2009. The Senator is against the tax credits for renewable energy because he said it would take away tax breaks from the oil & gas industry. Does this guy not realize that Nevada has more free energy falling from the sky everyday compared to anywhere else in the world? Why do we continue to elect such ignorant people into our government? Obviously, we have an energy problem, the rest of the world knows it but why is Senator Ensign so against solar panels and wind power? The bottom line is he supports big business, centralized power and high gas prices. Someone should let this guy know that if we could fully capture one hours worth of sunlight, we can power the entire world for a year. The sun has that much untapped power, here we’re drilling for a solution to our energy problems when the solution is obvious, look up its in the sky. Please contact senator john ensign and tell him what you think!!! We need the message to go through to the people who put roadblocks in front of renewable...
