When the production tax credit for wind energy expires at the end of the year, it could cost tens of thousands of jobs.

Let’s get the boring stuff out of the way up front. The renewable energy Production Tax Credit (PTC) is an incentive provided to energy producers equal to 2.2 cents per kilowatt-hour, adjusted annually for inflation. If you generate electricity using a renewable system — geothermal, wind, solar, etc. — you’re eligible. For now, anyway. The credit is expiring for most forms of energy creation at the end of 2013. For wind, it’s up at the end of 2012. Which has wind energy producers understandably nervous. But don’t worry, wind energy producers! Karl Rove has your back!
