WASHINGTON, DC – Building on the progress of the White House’s Climate Action Plan, the Department of Energy (DOE) announced last week that it would make an additional $4 billion worth of loan guarantees available for renewable energy and energy efficient projects.

WASHINGTON, DC – In response to President Obama’s call to improve energy efficiency in America and deploy expansive new solar resources, Rhone Resch, president and CEO of the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA), released the following statement:

WASHINGTON, DC – Saying it will spur billions of dollars in new investment in the U.S. economy, the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) today announced its strong support for Rep.

Calling it “critically important,” the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) is applauding “commence construction” legislation introduced today by Sen. Michael Bennet (D-CO) and Sen. Dean Heller (R-NV). Their bipartisan legislation would allow America’s solar energy companies to make full and effective use of the Investment Tax Credit (ITC).
