About SEIA

The Solar Energy Industries Association® (SEIA) is leading the transformation to a clean energy economy, creating the framework for solar to achieve 30% of U.S. electricity generation by 2030. SEIA works with its 1,200 member companies and other strategic partners to fight for policies that create jobs in every community and shape fair market rules that promote competition and the growth of reliable, low-cost solar power.

Founded in 1974, SEIA is the national trade association for the solar and solar + storage industries, building a comprehensive vision for the Solar+ Decade through research, education and advocacy. SEIA has earned numerous awards for its work and company culture and was named by the Washington Post as a 2023 Top Workplace and a Best Nonprofit to Work For by the Nonprofit Times. 

We believe solar isn’t just the future. It’s our present.

Our Vision

Our vision is to represent an industry that will be the single largest source of new energy generation over the next decade and to grow as the national voice of a larger, more unified and more diverse industry.
