Monday, Sep 21 2020
SACRAMENTO, Calif. and WASHINGTON, D.C. — Following is a statement from Rick Umoff, California senior director and counsel at the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) on the solar concerns originally raised with the Schools and Communities First Initiative, also known as Proposition 15:
“On behalf of the solar industry, our concerns with Proposition 15 have been remedied by the enactment of Senate Bill 364. This bill addresses unintended impacts of Proposition 15 on utility-scale and commercial solar projects and will allow solar development to move forward in California. SEIA commends the California legislature and Governor Newsom for their efforts to enact SB 364. SEIA and its members do not oppose Proposition 15.”
The Solar Energy Industries Association® (SEIA) is leading the transformation to a clean energy economy, creating the framework for solar to achieve 20% of U.S. electricity generation by 2030. SEIA works with its 1,000 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.
