04 Jun: Senate Enviro Panel Greenlights Smith Bill Providing Incentives For Use Of Wind Energy

TRENTON – The Senate Environment Committee has approved a bill sponsored by Senator Bob Smith that would provide an incentive for the increased use of wind as a viable alternative energy source.

“Any time we can promote the use of alternative energies we stand to reap long-term benefits,” said Sen. Smith (D-Middlesex). “Sales tax exemptions on the purchase of solar equipment have helped proliferate the use of this energy source over the last few decades. Hopefully this bill will provide similar incentives to increase the use of wind energy, particularly within the business sector.”
