Press Release

WASHINGTON, D.C. - Following is a statement from Katherine Gensler, vice president of regulatory affairs for the Solar Energy Industries Association,  on the passage of S.B. 2066 in the Texas Senate:

“SEIA congratulates the Texas Senate for passing legislation that will prevent cities from getting in the way of homeowners who want to install solar and become more energy independent. More and more Texans are choosing to go solar at their own expense and are reducing the stress they put on the electric grid, which benefits everyone. S.B. 2066 protects consumers by detailing the information all solar installers will provide to customers so they can choose the solar investment that best meets their needs. This is a big step forward for solar customers in Texas, and we urge swift passage in the House.”
