Recurrent Energy Joins SEIA’s Board of Directors
Thursday, Nov 16 2017
WASHINGTON, D.C. - The Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA), the national trade association of the U.S. solar energy industry, announced today that Recurrent Energy, a leading utility-scale project developer, is now a member of SEIA’s Board of Directors.
“This is a critical point in time for the U.S. solar industry and having the guidance, support and expertise of Recurrent Energy will benefit the entire industry,” said Abigail Ross Hopper, SEIA’s president and CEO. “We look forward to working with their team to promote policies that expand the growth of solar energy nationwide.”
Based in the San Francisco Bay Area, Recurrent Energy has a 4 gigawatt (GW) project portfolio with 1.2 GW of solar projects commissioned in 2016 alone. Recurrent Energy is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Canadian Solar Inc. (“Canadian Solar”) and functions as Canadian Solar’s U.S. project development arm.
Ty Daul, a 27-year power industry veteran, will serve as Recurrent Energy’s board representative. Daul oversees Recurrent Energy, as well as Canadian Solar’s project development efforts in Canada and Latin America.
“I am honored to join the SEIA Board of Directors to represent Recurrent Energy,” Daul said. “As we expand our U.S. project development footprint, SEIA’s work will play a critical role.”
Today, there are 47.1 GW of installed solar capacity in the U.S. – enough to power more than 9.1 million American homes. By 2022, that number is expected to increase to nearly 22 million. However, that will not happen if price floors and tariffs are put in place.
As a member of SEIA’s Board, Recurrent Energy, alongside other board representatives, joins in SEIA’s efforts to oppose the 201 case and its fight to save the tens of thousands of U.S. solar jobs currently at risk.
