What Wind Energy Companies Are Saying…

Challenges

  • First state to tax wind generation
  • Only state with three taxes on wind energy industry: 1) Property tax, 2) Sales tax, 3) Production tax
  • Some companies are looking to move from state next year possibly due to taxes
  • Longer distance to major markets adds costs, so tax structure needs to be even more competitive, not less
  • Negative perception of industry within Wyoming
  • No Renewable Energy Standard (RES)
  • Lack of support for industry at the state government level
  • Sage grouse issue
  • Lack of corporate income tax isn’t a benefit; most companies won’t make a profit for years
  • Although it is an energy resource, it is treated as a political issue, not a commodity
wyoming treats every business like a big fish in a small pond no matter of its size
