WASHINGTON, DC – Carrie Cullen Hitt, SEIA Senior Vice President of State Affairs, released the following statement today, applauding the California Legislature for its continued support of solar deployment statewide:
“California’s just-completed legislative session was the textbook definition of ‘commitment’ to clean energy. Four significant solar-related bills were approved by the legislature – and all four are expected to be signed into law by Governor Brown. California should be congratulated for its smart, forward-looking solar policies, which have already helped to produce nearly 44,000 good-paying solar jobs around the state. SEIA applauds the legislature and Governor Brown for their leadership, commitment to clean energy and commitment to job creation.”
