Many affordable housing developers are finding innovative ways to finance clean energy. Learn about recent PV and storage projects from leading affordable housing project management companies committed to solar. This SEIA webinar will showcase affordable housing PV and storage project structures and introduce PV project pipelines both near-term (2015-16) and long-term.
Section 1603 Treasury Grants were made available to solar and other renewable energy projects in lieu of tax credits by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Tax Act of 2009. In the case of solar property, the Section 1603 Grant is 30 percent of the cost basis of the qualified property. In administering the Grant Program, the Treasury Department has routinely reduced the amount of the Section 1603 Grants paid to applicants below the amounts claimed.
An increasingly popular model for solar ownership has emerged: shared solar. Through shared solar, many persons come together to jointly own a single solar array. This form of ownership can expand solar ownership to groups previously unable to purchase their own solar arrays and has attracted growing interest from states, developers, and potential owners.
On Monday, June 15, 2015, SEIA submitted comments to the Senate Finance Committee concerning the solar Investment Tax Credit (ITC) and the Modified Accelerated Cost Recovery System (MACRS) as it pertains to solar industry deployment.
The U.S. Department of Commerce is set to reveal its final determination on anti-dumping and countervailing duties against solar products from China and Taiwan on or about December 16, 2014. Will Commerce revisit its original scope decision and will the Department maintain its preliminary findings?
The EPA’s Clean Power Plan recognizes and bolsters the current opportunity to reduce carbon emissions by transitioning United States electric grid from a fossil fuel dominant fuel mix to a balanced energy portfolio that includes higher penetration of renewable energy resources. The Clean Power Plan will require affected electric generating units (affected EGUs) within each state to reduce their carbon emissions, thus presenting the opportunity for utilities and states to shift towards sources that generate energy with little or no carbon emissions such as solar energy.
Participants learn from leading experts how to cut down on customer acquisition costs. James Tong, vice president of strategy at Clean Power Finance, shares his insights from his work with National Renewable Energy Labs to understand the drivers of consumer adoption of solar, which was funded by the Department of Energy SunShot Initiative. Omer Atesmen, President and Co-Founder of Clean Energy Experts, will show his data from thousands of successful solar customer conversions to help optimize your conversation rates.
The Low Carbon Grid Study, which examines the feasibility of halving California’s electric sector emissions by 2030, is currently underway. Results from the first of the study’s two phases show that this magnitude of emissions reductions is possible with approximately no impact to utility revenue requirement, using a combination of strategies: a diverse renewables fleet, energy efficiency, flexible load, robust regional cooperation, and efficient use of natural gas resources. This webinar will feature the lead project manager of the study, who will review initial results, answer questions, and discuss plans for the second phase.
Women in Solar Energy is a newly formed non-profit resource and membership organization for women in the solar industry. This webinar will educate listeners on the state of women in the industry and you will learn what you can do to get involved.
