Record development of domestic oil, natural gas, solar, and wind power means America can be energy independent and energy rich again. New technology, private investment, and smart public policies are helping us make it happen now. Congress needs to maintain proven long-term policies that encourage more energy development of all types, including solar power, which enjoys bipartisan voter support.

As expected, the U.S. International Trade Commission today upheld the imposition of tariffs against Chinese and Taiwanese solar products, as part of a 2014 investigation into allegations of unfair trade practices. While it was the news we expected, it was not the news we wanted.
Is there a correlation between oil prices and solar stocks? The answer is no, even though you’d never know that by looking at the stock market.
With the 30 percent solar Investment Tax Credit (ITC) set to expire at the end of 2016, we need to dramatically step up our efforts to shine a bright light on the amazing success of solar energy in America. Next week, with the new Congress just sworn in, these efforts will begin in earnest.
People in Washington love to talk about an “all-of-the-above” national energy strategy. But usually that’s “code” or “political speak” for efforts to increase drilling around the United States. To its credit, the American Petroleum Institute (API) released a new, comprehensive report today, which gives us a look into how an “all-of-the-above” approach, including renewables, is working.

Any way you look at it, the sun continues to shine brightly on America’s solar energy industry.
Getting homeowners to go solar is difficult - to say the least. It's expensive and time-consuming, and it's hard to predict who will go solar and why. We've been working on reducing this cost and clearing up the mystery.
After more than five months of listening to both pros and cons, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has finally closed the public comment period on its proposed plan to cut carbon emissions from power plants. Now it’s time for the EPA to make a good plan even better.
Under the leadership of Governor Deval Patrick, who leaves office in early January, Massachusetts has become a national leader in the deployment of solar energy.
With the National Association of Regulatory Utility Commissioners (NARUC) annual meeting kicking off on Saturday, I wanted to take a moment to welcome the commissioners to San Francisco and talk a little about how important solar power is to the health of our nation, our economy and our grid.
