WASHINGTON, D.C. - In a letter filed today, the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA), alongside a broad coalition of energy trade and advocacy organizations, urges Congress to modify the tax code to include energy storage as an eligible technology for the investment tax credit (ITC). Following is a statement on the effort from SEIA president and CEO Abigail Ross Hopper:
A statement from Abigail Ross Hopper, president and CEO of the Solar Energy Industries Association, in support of policy advocated by Senators Tim Scott (R-S.C.) and Michael Bennet, (D-Colo.) in a letter to Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin. The policy would expand the universe of storage projects that are eligible for the Solar Investment Tax Credit.
WASHINGTON, D.C. - Today, the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) and the Colorado Solar Energy Industries Association (COSEIA) jointly commended Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper for signing into law energy storage legislation that will help the state’s solar market and jobs grow. The measure, Senate Bill 9, allows Colorado residents to install and use energy storage on their property without unnecessary restrictions or discriminatory rates. The legislation makes Colorado one of the first states to declare energy storage a “right” for consumers.
We’ve heard for years that integrating storage technologies with solar infrastructure can ensure around-the-clock reliability. That future may be closer than we think, particularly after two major federal developments in the last few weeks that will support the long-term investment and development of energy storage in the U.S.
