(BOISE) – Idaho’s House of Representatives has passed a measure that would give tax rebates to wind energy developers. The bill would extend existing six percent tax incentives for wind turbine projects, but would decrease their size. Idaho Falls Rep. Erik Simpson, who opposed the bill, says taxpayers would pay an estimated $70 million to support the already wealthy wind energy developers. Officials with Idaho Power applauded the decision, and supports the state’s initiative to produce clean, reliable, and affordable energy.
