Wiser Capital, Supports investment in sustainable energy with tax-policy that is at least equal to the benefits given to fossil fuels.
Investment in sustainable energy development should have access to the same tax-advantaged corporate forms and capital structures as traditional fossil fuel development. We seek equity in current tax policy so sustainable energy development can use similarly beneficial corporate structures. Master Limited Partnerships (MLPs), available for fossil fuel exploitation, provide access to capital that creates jobs and economic activity through construction and energy development. Sustainable sources of energy can provide equal (or more) economic benefit, job creation, plus Nat’l Security and environmental upsides, but are arbitrarily excluded from using the MLP structure.
