HUTCHINSON, Kan. (AP) U.S. Sen. Jerry Moran plans to tour a wind turbine equipment factory in Hutchinson amid his efforts to extend the wind energy production tax credit.
Monday’s tour of the Siemens Energy Inc. will include talks with employee and managers. Moran is being joined by representatives from British Petroleum, which is building a large wind farm in south-central Kansas.
Moran recently introduced an amendment to the federal highway bill to extend the wind energy production tax credit for a year.
The Siemens plant makes nacelles the part of the wind turbine that houses the gearbox, drive train and electronic controls.
