Solar and Storage Industry Makes Recommendations to U.S. Treasury Department on Implementation of the Inflation Reduction Act
WASHINGTON, D.C. — The Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) today filed responses to the U.S. Department of the Treasury's request for public comments on the clean energy tax provisions of the landmark Inflation Reduction Act (IRA). As part of its ongoing efforts to support implementation of the IRA, SEIA is working with its members to provide industry insight and expertise to help Treasury and other federal agencies clarify pieces of the legislation.
The Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) submitted new comments on the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission’s (FERC’s) Notice of Proposed Rulemaking on interconnection reforms that can speed clean energy deployment. SEIA’s comments recommend ways to make it faster and easier to connect solar and energy storage projects to the electricity grid, consistent with the President’s clean energy goals.
While the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) has already created a number of resources for members to use to build their understanding of the IRA and maximize the law’s benefits, RE+ 2022 is just around the corner, presenting an excellent opportunity for clean energy companies to hear directly from SEIA experts about how the IRA is changing the energy landscape.
