WASHINGTON, D.C. – To support the financing of community solar projects, Senator Mark Udall of Colorado today introduced the bipartisan Solar Uniting Neighborhoods (SUN) Act, which SEIA President and CEO Rhone Resch applauded:
“If approved, Senator Udall’s legislation would allow Americans who work together as a community to employ solar to receive the same tax advantages as individual homeowners and businesses. This is an imaginative and innovative approach to expanding the use of clean solar energy nationwide.

Washington University in St. Louis and a consortium of universities, laboratories and industry partners are in the process of launching the Solar Energy Research Institute in India and the United States to coordinate efforts to create low-cost solar cells and systems.
Senate Republicans rolled out a series of big energy measures this week but declined to say whether they would try and move their agenda through in a catchall bill if they regain the Senate majority.
The solar industry has done a spectacular job lowering costs in the past three years, slashing per-watt costs in half. But that price freefall, driven by the massive scale-up of Chinese manufacturers, has put dozens, if not hundreds, of solar companies on the endangered list.
