President Announces New Policies to Remove Barriers to Clean Energy Drawing Strong Support from Solar Industry
In response to the President's planned remarks to expand markets for solar energy and energy efficiency in Las Vegas tonight at Sen. Harry Reid's Clean Energy Summit, Rhone Resch, president and CEO of the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) released the following statement:
Calling President Obama’s signature climate change policy both “historic” and “critically needed,” the solar industry issued its strong support for the Environmental Protection Agency’s Clean Power Plan, scheduled to be released on Monday, urging states to consider solar as a clean, affordable, reliable and carbon-free solution.
As part of the federal government’s ongoing efforts to improve sustainability and reduce harmful carbon emissions, the U.S. Navy and General Services Administration (GSA) have announced plans to develop more than 10 megawatts (MW) of new solar facilities in the nation’s capital, building on progress already made through the launch of the Capital Solar Challenge. Today, nine percent of the federal government’s electricity comes from renewable energy sources, including solar, putting the White House on pace to reach its goal of 30 percent renewable energy use by 2025.
The first-ever “Quadrennial Energy Review” was released today by the Obama administration, calling for “significant change” to America’s aging energy infrastructure, including long overdue upgrades to the U.S. electric grid.
In a decision that’s certain to help to speed up America’s transition to a clean energy future, President Obama announced today that the Department of Energy (DOE) will launch a new initiative to train 75,000 Americans – including military veterans – to enter the solar workforce by 2020.
WASHINGTON, DC - Vowing to do its part, the U.S. solar energy industry is “uniquely positioned” to help America meet its goals for reducing greenhouse gas emissions, according to Rhone Resch, president and CEO of the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA). Today, the White House unveiled a blueprint for reducing greenhouse gases in the U.S. by up to 28 percent by 2025, with SEIA pledging its support to help meet those goals.
