House OKs Resolution to Classify Hydropower as Renewable

(Juneau) - The Alaska State House of Representative today passed a
resolution urging Congress to add Hydropower to the definition of a
renewable energy project.

House Joint Resolution 23, sponsored by the House Special Committee
on Energy, asks that congress act to include hydropower in definitions
and programs allowing the state to capture tax credits and incentives
for production and construction of hydropower projects.

"There is no question that hydro power is, and must continue to be,
part of our energy solution," Energy Co-Chair Lance Pruitt,
R-Anchorage, said. "Hydro is the largest source of renewable energy
not only in Alaska, but in the entire U.S."

"Opening up the grid and expanding it with clean, renewable hydro
allows for greater expansion of the electrical grid; being able to
push more power to more places," Energy Co-Chair Neal Foster, D-Nome,
said.
