WASHINGTON, D.C. - The Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA), the national trade association for the U.S. solar energy industry, is adding divisions to focus more aggressively on solar and storage and on solar manufacturing. The new divisions are part of SEIA’s broader governance plan to enter the 2020s as America’s leading source of new electricity generation. SEIA also is launching committee’s on energy storage and community solar and establishing a working group to reduce the soft costs of going solar.
