Governor Freudenthal Weighs In On Wind Energy Tax Legislation

Governor Dave Freudenthal appeared as a guest on KROE'S Public Pulse program Tuesday. The Governor commented on the wind energy tax bill that was recently approved in the House of Representatives and is now headed to the Senate for approval.

The Governor had proposed a $3-per-megawatt-hour tax on wind energy production; however, that number was reduced to $1-per-megawatt-hour by the House. Revenue from the tax is projected at a minimum of $4 million annually, and would be divvied up between the State and the counties where the wind projects are located.
