WASHINGTON, D.C. — In a release of preliminary results on the 2024 ICC Building Code online governmental vote, the International Code Council’s (ICC) members have approved two compromise proposals from the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) that designate solar and storage projects as Risk Category 2 infrastructure.
WASHINGTON, D.C. — More than 315 leading clean energy companies are calling on International Code Council (ICC) voters to reject a code proposal from FEMA that will upend U.S. clean energy progress, and instead, approve a set of compromise solutions. The proposed FEMA change to the 2024 International Building Code, S76-22, would require solar, storage and wind projects to meet Risk Category 4 requirements, the most stringent category possible.
Climate change, hurricanes, FEMA, clean energy, the electric grid. Recently, these terms have been front and center for millions of Americans. Between historic federal legislation, intensifying natural disasters and rising electricity prices, the clean energy transition is more relevant and urgent than ever. However, a quiet storm is brewing that risks undercutting American clean energy and climate progress.
The American Energy Opportunity Act will create jobs, make U.S. energy more resilient, and reduce carbon emissions
Solar is an energy solution that provides clean, reliable electricity, increases consumer choice, and helps homeowners and business owners save money on their utility bills. As a carbon-free electricity source, solar is also a critical component of our nation's effort to combat the climate crisis. SEIA works every day to promote an equitable transition to a clean energy future and ensure the benefits of solar energy are available to all communities.
The Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) announced today that it has hired Evelyn Butler to run the trade association’s Codes & Standards work.
The Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) today announced the formation of the PV Mounting System Manufacturers Committee (MSMC). This committee will work with other SEIA members to ensure the industry is working together to advance solar products, services and policies. It will bring together manufacturers of the components that literally hold the solar industry together.
In a strong show of leadership in the fastest-growing renewable energy industry in America, the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) today issued the SEIA Solar Business Code to further transparency and understanding in solar power transactions, while maintaining high levels of competiveness. The code is the first national guidance document covering interactions between solar companies and consumers and is effective immediately.
