As of July 2013, nearly 4% of all electricity generated in the U.S. is produced by wind turbines. 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.

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. 5 years ago from a Green in Portland, OR
Even though I am for alternative energy sources, wind power needs to take in consideration how it affects wild life, such as eagles and other large birds. This should be a consideration of all alternative energy sources whether it is using the wind,... 5 years ago from a Green in Lawrence, KS
Nuclear power should be subsidized. 5 years ago from a Socialist in West Newton, MA
Tax credits should be based on expanding/scaling technologies that have already demonstrated results in a laboratory setting. 5 years ago from a Libertarian in Saint Paul, MN
No tax credits; no subsidies without repayment if/when entity becomes profitable. 5 years ago from a Democrat in Philadelphia, PA
Big oil also received tax credits. Neither industry should be given unfair advantage but alternative energy should be given freedom to expand. 5 years ago from a Republican in Oak Ridge, TN
We should not need the government to help us innovate, as long as we eliminate the interests of Capital. 5 years ago from a Socialist in Portland, OR
Wind and Nuclear power I believe are the most efficient forms of energy. Coal and oil power are inefficient and will die as industries within a short while, but efforts should be taken to prepare for that eventuality, like investing in other forms of... 5 years ago from a Green in Greensboro, NC
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. 5 years ago from a Democrat in Seattle, WA
Yes, but only to nurture new technologies, none at all after an incubation period. 5 years ago from a Democrat in Seattle, WA
No, the government should let the free market determine the best energy sources. 5 years ago from a Libertarian in Winter Park, FL
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... 5 years ago from a Green in Durham, NC
Yes but in order to be effective we MUST upgrade the grid to allow for better transference of power so that it doesn't degrade as it does now. 5 years ago from a Democrat in Medina, WA
Yes but only with 10 year term loans that hold executives of such industries personally accountable with up to 100% of their personal assets if repayment is not made within the 10 year term. 5 years ago from a Republican in Sykesville, MD
No, invest in rooftop solar. 5 years ago from a Democrat in Washington, DC
No, the government should divest from energy technologies and allow the market to move to cheaper, more sustainable energy technologies. 5 years ago from a Republican in Arlington, VA
No, It has issues. Solar and other technologies need to be developed. 5 years ago from a Democrat in Lovejoy, MO
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
No, they should start looking for other more viable means of energy, including nuclear. 5 years ago from a Democrat in Garrett Park, MD
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. 5 years ago from a Green in Brady Lake, OH
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
