(1) The King Pine wind energy project is a 175,000 acre project, with a projected $2 billion cost. The developer could get an investment tax credit of 30%, i.e. $600 million “To receive the full production tax credit amount of 2.6 cents per kilowatt-hour or full investment tax credit of 30%, projects over 1 megawatt must satisfy apprenticeship and prevailing wage requirements. Facilities of under 1 MW are exempt from these requirements. The base credit amount for larger projects that do not meet the wage and apprenticeship requirements is 20% of the full credit amount.”
