When energy and climate analysts look back on the 2020s, they will see a transformed energy landscape dominated by new solar energy generation, the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) said in recognition of the start of the Solar+ Decade.
Today, dozens of solar energy supporters from across the country gathered at the headquarters of the U.S. International Trade Commission (USITC) to rally for an end to solar tariffs. Clad in yellow scarves and holding sun balloons, solar workers called on the USITC to grant relief from the harmful solar tariffs.
The results are in for the 2019 state elections and while both political parties enjoyed victories, one thing is clear—solar energy is poised to grow as several key states voted in officials who support and champion clean energy. There are now tangible, long-term opportunities for continued solar development in states like Mississippi, Virginia, and Kentucky, among many others. We cannot afford to lose this momentum.

From Anchorage, Alaska, to Sarasota, Florida, more than 300 local governments have now met national benchmarks for encouraging the growth of solar energy and removing barriers to solar market development.
Solar Power International (SPI) and North America Smart Energy Week (NASEW) 2019 featured an array of new programming to address and discuss diversity & inclusion challenges.
As part of the first steps into the Solar+ Decade, the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) released a roadmap that puts solar energy on a path to reaching 20% of U.S. electricity generation by 2030. The roadmap is a 10-year strategic vision for the solar industry that highlights both opportunities and systemic challenges the industry will need to overcome to reach its goals.
