No, but there should also be an end to tax incentives and subsidies across the energy sector, including oil and gas, coal, nuclear, and hydro. Research and development grants should be available and encouraged, but stop subsidies to existing technology. 6 years ago from a Green in Portland, OR
Tax credits, yes. no subsidies. 6 years ago from a Republican in Oak Hill, WV
No, tax credits and subsidies are not an efficient way of inciting change in a competitive market. 6 years ago from a Republican in Clearwater, FL
No. Wind power is a flawed system w high maintenance cost and low out put. We should invest more into solar fields. Low cost with high yield. 6 years ago from a Democrat in Waimanalo, HI
No, but research should continue but not on the taxpayers dime. 6 years ago from a Libertarian in Spearfish, SD
Yes, if the oil industry can have tax credits and subsidies, then the wind power industry should receive the same incentives. 6 years ago from a Libertarian in San Antonio, TX
Yes, the oil industries have received many tax credits and subsidies from the federal government. Why shouldn't sustainable forms of energy initiatives not receive the same treatment?. 6 years ago from a Libertarian in Miami, FL
We should not need the government to help us innovate, as long as we eliminate the interests of Capital. 6 years ago from a Socialist in Portland, OR
Yes, but reduce the amount it costs the federal government. This should be something that the farmers can get compensated for from power companies rather than the federal government. 6 years ago from a Republican in Macon, GA
No, the complicated process of providing tax credits is not an effective measure of the wind powers industrys production of green energy. 6 years ago from a Democrat in Seattle, WA
Only if it levels the "playing field", oil companies enjoy tax credits and subsidies so why shouldn't wind? I think they should all end for all sources for energy though. 6 years ago from a Democrat in Seattle, WA
Yes, but only to nurture new technologies, none at all after an incubation period. 6 years ago from a Democrat in Seattle, WA
No. Wind farms are horrible looking. They kill many birds a year and they still monopolize energy in the hands of the super wealthy. Subsidize people to install small units on their own homes. 6 years ago from a Republican in Wellsville, NY
Alternative energy is not a certain benefit for the U.S. Our power grids still require massive updates before they will be capable of storing the massive amounts of additional energy created by alternative sources.
I do believe that all alternative... 6 years ago from a Democrat in Modesto, CA
Yes because it is nowhere near as efficient as other energy sources. No need in spending the time and resources. 6 years ago from a Democrat in Mocksville, NC
If it is made ot be more efficient, such as micro wind farms that can be placed on the tops of buildings, coupled with solar panels, and be less hazardous to wildlife, then yes. However wind power in its current form is ineffective as a replacement for... 6 years ago from a Green in Durham, NC
Yes, but not to the point of picking winners and losers. Subsidies are meant to help businesses compete against monopolies but shouldn't go so far as to dictate our purchasing options. 6 years ago from a Republican in Fairfield, IA
No, wind power can do more harm to the environment than good. 6 years ago from a Green in Denver, CO
The government should fund research and development of new, cleaner energy sources and technology and use all sources of energy available to us now, until we find a permanent alternative. 6 years ago from a Libertarian in Commerce, TX
Solar power is much less of a threat to wildlife. Alternative energy is a *must* but the wind power industry is looking to make money, not save the environment--else they would not be setting windmills up in the migration path of endangered birds. 6 years ago from a Green in Brady Lake, OH
Yes, the wind power industry is an important alternative to coal and natural gas, but perhaps not tens of thousands of dollars in tax credits. 6 years ago from a Republican in Mchenry, IL
