WDDA to Gather Support for Increased 25C Credits

Washington DC (October 7, 2011) – The Window & Door Dealers Alliance plans to gather support for the renewal and increase of tax incentives for purchasers of energy efficient home improvement products at the Remodeling Show next week.  Exhibiting at the event in Chicago, WDDA will be collecting signatures on a petition to be sent to Congressional leaders and the White House urging the expansion of the 25C tax credits.

“Our members know the tax credits in place in 2009 and 2010 were effective in spurring homeowners to invest in increasing the energy efficiency of their homes.  They also contributed to the creation of thousands of jobs,” reports David Walker, WDDA VP.  “With the petition, we can build upon the support voiced by WDDA and other industry organizations and strengthen the united voice that policymakers need and want to hear. “

“We desperately need the expansion of these credits to provide incentives and confidence for consumers purchases, to create much needed jobs, and continue the positive momentum built in the last few years  for energy efficiency upgrades within residential properties,” states dealer David Sakin, President, Premiere Window & Building, Inc, of Owings Mills, MD.

WDDA plans to submit its petition to the offices of Senators that are to influence the outcome of this debate. If you are not attending the Remodeling Show, you can show your support by sending a letter of support to the WDDA at dwalker@wddalliance.org.

WDDA is exhibiting at the Remodeling Show in conjunction with Window & Door magazine in booth “We know thousands of remodeling industry professionals will be in Chicago,” Walker notes.  “We encourage them all to stop by our booth to sign the petition and learn more about how the WDDA is making a difference”.
