Wind Power, Natural Gas Cars Get A Plug
From Houston Chronicle
The Obama administration touted its “all-of-the-above” energy approach in Houston on Thursday with dual promotions supporting natural gas vehicles and a federal tax credit for wind power.
Deputy Energy Secretary Daniel Poneman visited the city to announce $30 million in grants for the development of natural gas vehicle technologies, including more than $7 million for Texas researchers. He also pushed for an extension of the federal wind power tax credit, which is set to expire this year.
