Following an October 13, 2021 letter filed by a group of anonymous petitioners regarding anti-dumping/countervailing duties (AD/CVD) on solar imports from Malaysia, Thailand, and Vietnam, SEIA sent a letter to U.S. Secretary of Commerce Gina Raimondo, articulating the industry's opposition to the baseless tariffs and responding to the petitioners' attacks on SEIA and the U.S. solar industry.
SEIA joins Sec. Granholm and Sen. Van Hollen to launch SolarAPP+ and discuss clean energy infrastructure. For most of the year, Congress has been working on legislation that can deliver on the President’s Build Back Better vision to create American clean energy jobs and strengthen U.S. infrastructure.
In 2019, SEIA laid out a vision for the 2020s in our Roadmap for the Solar+ Decade. In that roadmap, we set a target for solar energy to reach 20% of generation by 2030 as the U.S. transforms the electric grid and builds a robust clean energy economy.
WASHINGTON, D.C. — The Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) is increasing its goal for Solar+ Decade, aiming for solar to account for 30% of U.S. electricity generation by 2030. The organization’s previous goal was 20% by 2030, and this revision aligns with the Biden administration’s clean energy targets while accounting for the growing urgency to tackle climate change and reduce carbon emissions in the electricity sector.
On August 16, an anonymous group of companies filed tariff circumvention petitions with the U.S. Department of Commerce. If allowed to proceed, these anonymous petitions would cripple the U.S. solar industry and ruin America’s plans to tackle climate change. The U.S. Department of Commerce must exercise its authority to reject these petitions.
85 solar companies with operations in Arizona sent a letter to Senator Kyrsten Sinema, articulating the industry's priorities for strong clean energy policies in upcoming legislation, and the impact and potential of accelerating clean energy deployment for Arizona's economic future.
WASHINGTON, D.C. — U.S. Secretary of Energy Jennifer Granholm wrote an open letter to all U.S. mayors asking them to adopt SolarAPP+, a transformative online solar permitting tool that helps to speed rooftop solar deployment. This effort comes as Secretary Granholm caps off the Summer of Solar, her push to educate Americans on the benefits of solar energy. Secretary Granholm set a goal to get 125 communities to sign up to learn more about SolarAPP+ by September 30.
More than 200 solar companies signed a letter to U.S. Secretary of Commerce Gina Raimondo, urging the department to reject an anonymous petition to expand the scope of antidumping and countervailing duties (AD/CVD) on solar imports, which would harm the U.S. solar industry and the nation's climate goals.
WASHINGTON, D.C. and HOUSTON, TX —Supply chain constraints are leading to price increases across every solar market segment, despite the addition of 5.7 gigawatts (GWdc) of solar capacity in Q2 2021, according to the U.S. Solar Market Insight report released today by the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) and Wood Mackenzie, a Verisk business (Nasdaq: VRSK).
