The Renewable Energy Extension Act of 2019 would provide a five-year extension for both the ITC and the Section 25D tax credit for residential energy-efficient property. Barring a change, the ITC will begin a phasedown from 30 percent at the end of this year to a permanent 10 percent in 2022. Rep. Mike Thompson, D-Calif. introduced the bill in the House with two Republican co-sponsors, while Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto, D-Nev., was the sponsor in the Senate, with 14 Democrat co-sponsors.
