Expanding Solar Deployment Opportunities in the C&I Sector
An Introduction to Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE)
SEIA is committed to meeting a goal of 50,000 U.S. military veterans in the solar workforce by 2020. Find out what the industry is doing to bring vets into solar.
SEIA is actively engaged in leading states that are examining how to integrate greater penetrations of distributed solar and other distributed energy resources (DERs) into the electricity grid.
There has been significant recent attention to the possibility of including demand charges in the electricity rates charged to residents and small businesses.
In response to the growing popularity of rooftop solar and other distributed energy resources (DERs), some electric utilities have recently begun seeking ratemaking changes that would discourage customers from generating their own power and other
Net energy metering (NEM) is a billing mechanism that allows homeowners and businesses that generate their own electricity with their solar energy system to deliver power they do not use back into the grid and receive a credit.
