The facility is also expected to qualify to sell RECs in New York.
The PTCs are currently equal to $.01 per kilowatt hour for renewable energy generated from open loop biomass facilities such as Laidlaw Energy's New York facility, with the amount of the credit adjusted annually for inflation.
Congress recently extended the date by which qualifying renewable energy facilities must be placed in service in order to qualify for the PTC (PTC, Needham, MA, www.ptc.com) Long a world leader in mechanical computer-aided design, manufacturing and engineering software, PTC, through acquisitions and reorganization, has transformed itself into a leading provider of Internet-based B2B solutions for discrete manufacturers. to December 31, 2008.
