State taxes on wind
Provisions in some "red" states to require super-majority votes by state legislatures before taxes can be increased are serving as an impediment to imposing taxes on wind farms.
Wyoming imposes a tax of $1 a megawatt hour on electricity generated from wind.
State Senator Cale Case (R) has been trying to increase the tax to $5 a megawatt hour. Case failed in an effort to advance his proposal in the Joint Revenue Committee in December. He plans to try again next year
