Tri Global qualifies 1.52GW for PTC

Tri Global Energy has qualified 1.52GW of generation capacity at seven planned community-based wind projects in Texas for the federal production tax credit (PTC), the Dallas-based developer tells Recharge.

The incentive expired at the end of 2013. Still, projects were able to qualify benefitting from the provision that allows work of a “significant nature,” and 5% of their cost to have been incurred by 31 December 2013. Thereafter, a project is required to show “continuous construction.”

Most projects that did qualify will be built this year and in 2015, with the balance expected to get done in 2016.
