Legislative Updates - Some Bad News for Offshore Wind and Wave

If you're interesting in tracking U.S. policy on ocean energy, please bookmark and visit the website for the newly formed Ocean Renewable Energy Coalition, with a mission of promoting and advancing the utilization and commercialization of all forms of ocean renewables (wave, current, wind, etc...). Up at the site now is this link to the Alexander Senate Bill 1034 that among other things, proposes to deprive offshore wind farms of the production tax credit. And there's also this link to the Renewable Energy Title of the Senate Energy Bill which fails to extend either REPI payments to ocean or make ocean energy an eligible renewable resources for inclusion in a mandatory federal purchase requirement.
