STORAGE Act of 2010

Leave a comment

Sens. Bingaman, Wyden and Shaheen introduced SB.3617 – the STORAGE Act last month: To amend the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 to provide for an energy investment credit for energy storage property connected to the grid.

The bill would have a positive effect on batteries for the developing smart grid.  Storing energy for later use will be a key feature of a robust 21st century energy grid.  This act would be a good step in that direction.  I won’t hold my breath waiting for the broken Senate to pass it, however.
