Gov. John Kitzhaber joined a coalition of governors asking Congress to extend the Renewable Energy Production Tax Credit for at least four years.

Gov. John Kitzhaber joined a coalition of governors asking Congress to extend the Renewable Energy Production Tax Credit for at least four years.

The credit provides a 2.2 cent per kilowatt hour credit for power produced by wind, solar, geothermal and some bioenergy facilities for their first 10 years. It expires at the end of 2012.
