Dear Energy Patriot,

For years, Congress has subsidized energy production. This has to stop.

Tomorrow, we at the American Energy Alliance will kick off our 48 hour campaign to #EndTheWindGiveaway. With your help, we can end Congressí multi-billion dollar subsidy to wind energy companies.

Since 1992, Congress has handed out $20 Billion in subsidies to the wind industry via something called the Wind Production Tax Credit (PTC). Wind energy companies claim they need these subsidies to keep their inefficient businesses afloat. In recent times, wind has received 42% of all government energy subsidies but has produced less than 3 percent of the electricity generated.

How you can help:

1) Click here to sign our petition

2) Click here to send a tweet using our twitter feed

3) Forward this email to friends and ask them to do 1&2.

The wind industry has received subsidies since 1978 to give wind a ďleg up.Ē Isnít 35 years of subsidies enough? Isnít it about time that the wind industry stands on its own without massive taxpayer subsidies?

Extending the PTC just one year would cost taxpayers an additional $12 Billion! Help us end the cycle of corporate dependency!

this is the scary part..
