IRS Specifies Performance, Quality Standards For Small Wind Turbines


New regulations and safety standards set this month (January 2015) by the IRS.

From North American Windpower publication:

--- Quote --- A small wind turbine model must be certified by a third party accredited by the American Association for Laboratory Accreditation or a similar body. Then, the manufacturer may communicate the certification on its website or using any other means that will permit the customer to retain the certification for tax return purposes.

The IRS has the authority to impose safety and quality standards on all energy ITC technologies; this notice is the first instance of the IRS exercising that authority. Given the growing prevalence of solar, it will be interesting to see if the IRS publishes safety and quality standards for it.
