Payments for Specified Energy Property in Lieu of Tax Credits
ARRA authorizes the Department of the Treasury to make payments to eligible persons that either place in service particular types of energy property in 2009 or 2010, or, under certain circumstances, begin construction on such property in 2009 or 2010. These payments are generally equal to 10 or 30 percent of the eligible cost basis of the property, depending on the type of property. Those that apply for these payments must forego tax credits that they could otherwise receive under sections 45 and 48 of the Internal Revenue Code. The types of energy property that are eligible for these payments include, among others, various renewable energy generation facilities, microturbines, and fuel cells.

Production Tax Credit (PTC)
Through the 2009 American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, Congress acted to provide a three-year extension of the PTC through December 31, 2012. Additionally, wind project developers can choose to receive a 30% investment tax credit (ITC) in place of the PTC for facilities placed in service in 2009 and 2010, and also for facilities placed in service before 2013 if construction begins before the end of 2010. The ITC then qualifies to be converted to a grant from the Department of Treasury. The Treasury Department must pay the grant within 60 days of an application being submitted.
