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."
