At SEIA’s Southeast Federal Lobby Day, we invite you to roll up your sleeves and join us in Washington, DC to meet with the members of Congress that represent you and talk to them about the issues shaping the solar industry, your business, and your community.
Net Metering/Net Energy Metering (NEM)
You are here
The Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) appreciates the opportunity to submit comments in response to the Department of Energy Solar Energy Technologies Office (DOE SETO) Request For Information on “Net Benefits and Costs of Distributed Solar Energy and Innovative Solar Deployment Models”. SEIA is a very active participant on these issues in legislative and regulatory arenas in states across the country as well as in a variety of national forums.
WASHINGTON, DC - Rhone Resch, president and CEO of the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA), released the following statement today after carefully reviewing The Solar Foundation’s new state-by-state jobs report:
SEIA's State Affairs team provides a preview of the latest on net energy metering (NEM) from across the U.S.
As distributed generation (DG) solar energy systems continue to become more accessible and affordable, increased adoption of these grid-energy reducing technologies is likely. SEIA proposes the following principles as a foundation for designing rates that properly value and enable a high penetration of DG, while recognizing the interests of utility shareholders and non-generating customers in a system with just and reasonable rates. Overall, SEIA asserts that these principles are consistent with the imperative of public utility commissions and energy service providers to maintain reliable, cost-effective service to all customers while protecting the right of customers to generate their own energy in a manner that provides many public benefits including environmental protection and economic development.
WASHINGTON, D.C. – A key new report offering a standardized approach to determining the benefits and costs of distributed generation (DG) was released today by the Interstate Renewable Energy Council, Inc. (IREC). After reviewing the report, SEIA Sr. Vice President Carrie Cullen Hitt issued the following statement:
WASHINGTON, D.C. – The long-awaited Arizona Corporation Commission (ACC) staff report on Net Energy Metering (NEM) has affirmed several key positions taken by the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) in a recent filing before the commission.
After the report was issued, Carrie Cullen Hitt, SEIA Sr. Vice President for State Affairs, released the following statement:
