US House Republicans say wind tax credits could hurt grid reliability

Amid continued Republican attacks on federal subsidies for solar, wind and other sources of renewable power, US House Republicans on Thursday took aim once again, arguing those tax credits could make the electricity grid less reliable.

"The long-term subsidization of certain generation sources, such as wind, can impair reliability and drive up electricity prices," said Representative Ed Whitfield, a Kentucky Republican and chairman of the House Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Energy and Power.

"Homeowners and businesses need electricity whether or not the sun is shining or the wind is blowing, and the supply at any moment must match the demand. This is nearly impossible to do with intermittent renewables that are not readily available," he said during a subcommittee hearing on grid reliability.
