The Solar Vision Part 6: Tax Update

In this week’s installment of SEIA’s The Solar Vision: A 100 Day Agenda Webinar Series, our panelists will take an in-depth look at solar and solar + storage tax updates, financing trends, market forecasts, business impacts, and federal policy developments.

There is no single policy that can help the U.S. achieve a clean energy future. As we welcome the incoming Biden administration and 117th Congress, SEIA has outlined a suite of executive and legislative policies that can put America on a path to 100% clean energy.

The federal government, and FERC in particular, has an exciting opportunity in 2021 and beyond to spur innovation and deployment of solar energy technologies that will increase resilience and decrease the costs and emissions of the American energy system.
