Tax Credit is coming

I received an email telling me that there was a tax credit coming for small wind turbines, here what the email had to say.

Urge Your Representative to Vote for a Small-Wind Investment Tax Credit
This week the House of Representatives will vote on H.R. 6049, which contains an Investment Tax Credit (ITC) for small wind systems, an extension of the Production Tax Credit (PTC) for large turbines, and other legislation benefiting renewable energy. The bill overwhelmingly passed the Senate moments ago with a vote of 93 – 2 and is now making its way to the House for a vote. This could be that last opportunity this year for Congress to pass this legislation.

The bill includes an eight-year, 30% credit, capped at $4,000 for residential and commercial applications of small wind turbines. Small wind is defined as turbines with rated capacities of 100 kilowatts and less.

Please contact your Representative and urge him or her to vote Yes on H.R. 6049. by clicking here.

So please click the link and help us get that tax credit for those of you that would like to get a wind turbine for yourself.

Hutchison Project/ Updates

I was informed yesterday that the Hutchison's project was put on line yesterday by Detroit Edison.
So those who would like to see working stop by M-81 heading towards Cass City and they would be more than happy to show their turbine.

The Flynn project is still spinning along the turbine has produced 80 kilowatt hours for the month of August. So she so far has averaged 100 Kilowatts a month.

Tuesday the 9th we finished the Matuszak this project has been the biggest tower to date that I have installed for a customer. It is 70' tall overall. But I can see the advantages of going that high for a turbine, wind is straight and fast at that height.

The Matuszak project is next to go online either this week or next. I will now next week when I go back to the Thumb.

Tuscola County Advertiser

Wednesday there was an article in the Tuscola County Advertiser for the Hutchison Project. Since this article has came out I have been asked to come speak before the Farm Bureau in Caro on October 17th. I will post a time and place when I know more about this event.

We are installing the Matuszak's turbine Tuesday at 2:00pm, this will be the third turbine in Tuscola County and the tallest tower that I have to date. I will put pictures of it installed when it is done. Here is a picture of the tower laying on the ground.
