Press Release

WASHINGTON, D.C. - Following is a statement from Dan Whitten, SEIA's Vice President of Communications, on the Supreme Court's temporary stay of the Clean Power Plan:

"We are disappointed by the Supreme Court's decision because, at least for now, it puts a stop to a rule that addresses our nation’s and the world’s most pressing environmental threat. That said, we are confident that utilities and many states will move forward with plans for a clean energy future and that solar will continue to play a strong and growing role in America's electricity mix."
