Brown, Portman Introduce Bill to Make Linear Generation Eligible for ITC

Monday, May 3, 2021 - 8:45am

Ohio’s two U.S. senators introduced legislation to make linear generators eligible for the federal renewable energy investment tax credit. Sens. Sherrod Brown, D-Ohio, and Rob Portman, R-Ohio, introduced the Clean Energy Production Parity Act (S. 1485). Linear generation is a form of onsite power generation that can produce fuel from a variety of sources that include fossil fuels, natural gas, biomass, solar or wind. Linear generation does not meet the existing definition for qualified fuel cell property. The legislative text is not yet available.

Renewable energy legislation will be discussed at the Novogradac 2021 Spring Renewable Energy and Environmental Tax Credits Virtual Conference, May 20-21.
