WASHINGTON - The American Public Power Association and Large Public Power Council on Friday sent letters to the Senate urging members to extend and modify the Clean Renewable Energy Bond program to ensure that public power providers will receive allocations under the program.

The two-page letter comes as Sens. Maria Cantwell, D-Wash., and John Ensign, R-Nev., on Thursday introduced the Clean Energy Tax Stimulus Act of 2008. It would extend energy tax incentives, including the CREBs program, and provide an additional $400 million of CREBs to state and local governments, public power providers and cooperatives that are not eligible for renewable energy tax credits.
