WASHINGTON DC and TRENTON NJ – New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy today signed legislation that clarifies the state’s Board of Public Utilities’ (BPU) authority under the Clean Energy Act of 2018. The legislative changes will give the BPU more latitude in calculating the Clean Energy Act’s yearly cost caps. The following is a statement from David Gahl, senior director of northeast state affairs at the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA):
While this trade deal won’t do anything to relax the solar tariffs, it is a positive development for the U.S. solar industry.
Solar Industry Urges New Jersey Governor to Sign Flexible Spending Caps Legislation for Clean Energy Act
WASHINGTON, D.C. and TRENTON, N.J. — Today, the New Jersey General Assembly and Senate passed legislation that clarifies the Board of Public Utilities’ (BPU) authority under the Clean Energy Act. The identical bills authorize the BPU to rollover unused funding to the following year when calculating the cost caps. This measure would ease current constraints found under the program’s year-to-year cost caps.
When energy and climate analysts look back on the 2020s, they will see a transformed energy landscape dominated by new solar energy generation, the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) said in recognition of the start of the Solar+ Decade.

WASHINGTON, D.C.—The Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA), the national trade association for the U.S. solar energy industry, announced today the addition of Nexamp to its board of directors. Founded by two U.S. military veterans in 2007, Nexamp is committed to making energy clean, simple and accessible through programs that leverage the latest solar and energy storage technology for community-scale implementation.

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Today Congress and the White House were unable to agree on including an extension of the solar Investment Tax Credit (ITC) in an end of year tax package meaning the credit will decrease at the end of this year. The measure also failed to include energy storage in the ITC. This represents a missed opportunity to take an achievable step to boost the economy, add jobs and reduce carbon emissions. Following is a statement from Abigail Ross Hopper, president and CEO of the Solar Energy Industries Association on this development:
WASHINGTON, D.C. — Solar Energy Industries Association members have elected three at-large members and five division chairs to serve on the SEIA Board of Directors. The elected appointments are for two years. The new directors will help SEIA develop strategies to advance tax and trade policies, protect and create strong state solar markets and ensure competition. These priorities will lead to economic growth, jobs, and serious solutions to addressing climate change.
