Many utilities, environmental groups, and lawmakers from both parties are cheering the news that the credit was extended by one year as part of the fiscal-cliff deal. But the bruising fight over the last year doesn’t bode well for the sector as it must now reach agreement on how to ramp down the tax subsidy that was first created 21 years ago.
