The leaders of the American Wind Energy Association, Geothermal Energy Association, National Hydropower Association and Solar Energy Industries Association today released the following statement:
The fast-growing renewable energy sector is poised to help lead the U.S. economic recovery with millions of new jobs and billions of private investment dollars. However, the new Administration and Congress need to take action to ensure that the renewable industries’ growth continues, given the current economic realities.
Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) President Rhone Resch issued the following statement on the nationwide election results:
“Americans hired a new generation of leaders on the expressed promise that they will support clean energy policies – leaders like Jeanne Shaheen of New Hampshire and Kathy Dahlkemper of Pennsylvania. These lawmakers augment established Democratic and Republican leaders that are committed to expanding our nation’s renewable energy supplies. Now it's time to move forward on implementing the Obama energy plan that will create 5 million green-collar jobs in the U.S.”
