The Climate Group and the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) announce their partnership to create a campaign through Facebook to accelerate the rate of US residential solar adoption. The main component of the campaign is a web app where solar owners can access a badge to display their solar ownership on Facebook. In return, they permit us to us to include their Facebook profile in our solar owner database to share with people interested in solar power.

The latest anti-dumping and countervailing duty tariffs sought by SolarWorld threaten to dramatically increase the cost of solar PV in the U.S. - but by taking action now, SEIA member companies can help minimize the negative impact of these legal actions.
Join SEIA and GTM Research for a webinar covering the highlights of the U.S. Solar Market Insight: 2013 Year In Review. 2013 was an historic year for the U.S. solar industry, driven in part by a record level of installations in the fourth quarter. The webinar will touch on some of the main drivers of this historical growth as well as expectations and challenges for the market in 2014 and beyond.
Have you ever thought about how you could take advantage of the facilities and capabilities that the U.S. Department of Energy – the leading employer of scientists in the U.S. – has created for renewable energy? Here’s your opportunity to take the first step.
This webinar will provide an overview of PV system operations and maintenance (O&M) services and explain why such services are so important. There is a misconception that because PV systems often have few or no moving parts, these systems are maintenance free. The reality is that O&M activities are an essential component of helping to ensure a favorable return on investment.
Solar has seen a 70% compound annual growth since 2010, with over 4GW installed in 2013. Indeed, preliminary numbers indicate that approximately 28% of all new US generation capacity installed in 2013 was from solar. Despite this growth, solar generation is still a small part of the overall generation mix. This holds true even for the states with the highest solar penetration.
Mr. Barry Wides, Deputy Comptroller for Community Affairs at the OCC, will discuss the Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) and the Public Welfare Investment (PWI) authority and how they can enhance a banker’s investment appetite for solar projects. Some solar project developers have effectively capitalized on the interest of commercial banks and savings associations in obtaining CRA credit to turn concepts into bankable projects. And, a project’s ability to meet the requirements of PWI authority can ratchet up the return to a bank or thrift while deploying solar projects across wide swaths of population centers.
