Posted December 21, 2015 at 6:33am

Greentech Media reports that “lawmakers in the House and Senate passed a spending package today that includes multi-year extensions of solar and wind tax credits, plus one-year extensions for a range of other renewable energy technologies.”  

“The pair of bills, which included tax extenders and $1.1 trillion in funding to keep the government running for the next year, passed hours before lawmakers adjourned for the holidays.”  

“’May the force be with you,’ said Senator Dianne Feinstein, urging her fellow Senators to vote in favor of the package shortly after the House approved the bills.”  

“The force was certainly with renewables.”
