By installing wind turbines on their properties farmers can earn up to tens of thousands of dollars per year in tax credits. Since 2008 these tax credits have amounted to more than $14 Billion.

Yes, alternative energy is important, but wind farms are seriously harming bat populations, so we should also continue to look for less damaging options. 5 years ago from a Green in Fishers, IN
Yes, Subsidies for solar and other sustainable energies as long as they themselves are minimally detrimental to wildlife. 5 years ago from a Democrat in Paso Robles, CA
No, instead of handling every type energy with separate policies, simply put an equal-across-the-board dollar value on emissions; pay to emit greenhouse gases, or get paid to capture greenhouse gases underground. 5 years ago from a Democrat in Bellaire, TX
No, the long term consequences of wind power on a large scale are as yet unknown. It would be wrong to focus our attention on this energy source at the expense of others (e.g. solar power). 5 years ago from a Socialist in Nashua, NH
All energy sources should be nationalized. Private ownership of resources and tax credits to private companies for that energy is fascism. It is a corporatist relationship that merges states and private interests. 5 years ago from a Democrat in Pensacola, FL
No, invest in rooftop solar. 5 years ago from a Democrat in Washington, DC
No, there needs to be a audit of what forms of energy we can sustain and what is the most cost effective. That form should get credits and tax breaks. 5 years ago from a Democrat in Washington, DC
Tax credits should be offered for a variety of alternative energies, not just wind power, but subsidies should not be unless there is tangible benefit that can be demonstrated for the country as a whole. 5 years ago from a Democrat in Atlanta, GA
Subsidies only if they proven it's efficacy and not going to be a repeat of the solar power scandal. 5 years ago from a Libertarian in Maitland, FL
