  1. John Purcell, VP:Energy, thanks Sen. Mark Kirk for supporting the extension of the PTC in a letter to the editor of the Naperville Sun

    Investing in wind power has proven to be a good deal for Illinois. Wind has attracted over $7.2 billion in capital investment to the state and created thousands of well-paying jobs.

    That’s a big reason why I want to thank Illinois Republican Sen. Mark Kirk for supporting policy that will help keep the wind power success story going not just in Illinois, but all across the United States.

    Recently, Sen. Kirk joined a bipartisan coalition of 144 Senate and House members calling for an immediate extension of the Production Tax Credit and Investment Tax Credit. These tax credits have helped American wind power attract up to $25 billion a year in private investment into our national economy and foster economic development in all 50 states. Illinois alone has created nearly 7,000 jobs at 36 facilities around the state due to growing wind power.
