TRENTON, N.J. and WASHINGTON, D.C. — Today the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities (BPU) released highly anticipated guidelines for the state’s Competitive Solar Incentive Program (CSI). The new program design details will help ensure New Jersey continues to make progress on clean energy and offer a positive path forward for competitive solar and storage deployment in the Garden State. Following is a statement from Sean Gallagher, vice president of state and regulatory affairs for the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA):
SEIA's Solar Means Business Report tracks solar adoption from America's corporations and businesses. SEIA members at the Watt level and above have access to the full dataset behind this report, containing project level data for more than 48,000 individual commercial solar systems.
WASHINGTON, D.C. — More than 240 solar and storage companies are imploring Secretary Gina Raimondo to reject a petition for new anti-circumvention tariffs on solar products as a critical U.S. Department of Commerce deadline approaches.
More than 240 solar and storage companies are urging Secretary Gina Raimondo to reject a petition for new anti-circumvention tariffs on solar products as a critical U.S. Department of Commerce deadline approaches. Commerce must make its preliminary determination in Auxin Solar’s anti-circumvention case by December 1, and the companies on this letter are making clear that an affirmative determination is not justified and will once again stifle America’s ability to deploy clean energy.
Today, the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) congratulates newly elected governors, state lawmakers and members of Congress who will play an important role in shaping the future of clean energy in the United States.
SEIA Responses to U.S. Department of the Treasury Request for Public Comments on Inflation Reduction Act
The Solar Energy Industries Association’s SEIA filed the following 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.
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 Inflation Reduction Act Is Law, but Implementation Will Determine How it Works for Decades to Come
The landmark Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) has changed the trajectory of the U.S. energy market, sparking a projected five-fold increase in the size of America’s $33 billion solar and storage industry over the next decade. This immense growth seems inevitable with such a transformative law in place, but the moment President Biden’s pen came off the document, a mammoth implementation challenge was set in motion. Let’s start with what implementation means in practical terms.
The IRA will create millions of jobs, reduce energy costs, slash pollution and mitigate climate change impacts. The bill’s clean energy provisions represent a win for all American communities, and in fact, today, the most prevalent arguments against the law have little to no basis in truth.
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.
