The Biomass Thermal Energy Council (BTEC) sent a letter to House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Richard Neal (D-MA) and Representative Mike Thompson (D-CA) to thank the committee for its inclusion of the Section 25D residential biomass heating system tax credit in the Growing Renewable Energy and Efficiency Now (GREEN) Act, but urged the committee to reconsider its exclusion of the Section 48 business tax credit for commercial sized biomass heating systems.
Both the residential and business credits were introduced in the Biomass Thermal Utilization Act to the 116th Congress in February of this year. It is unclear whether the GREEN Act will receive a mark-up and advance before the end of the 2019 legislative session.
