Top Wind Industry Lobbyist to Resign

(The Hill)

The wind industry’s top lobbyist is resigning, The Hill has learned.

Denise Bode, chief executive with the American Wind Energy Association (AWEA), will leave her post Jan. 1 after four years at the head of the organization. She will return to private practice as a tax attorney.

The announcement comes in the midst of arguably the industry’s largest political battle. It is fighting to extend a 2.2-cent-per-kilowatt-hour credit for wind power production, which is set to expire Dec. 31.

In a Friday interview with The Hill, Bode said that she is "not going anywhere" until the credit extension "gets done."
