The Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) and Recurrent Energy host a breakfast and panel discussion on Monday, November 18, 2019 from 7:30am-8:45am to be held on-site at the Grand Hyatt San Antonio in Crockett AB.
Join us for a webinar on SEIA’s #DefendTheITC campaign, where you will hear from our Congressional Affairs and Public Relations teams about how you can support SEIA’s priority federal campaign. During this webinar you will learn about how to coordinate an in-district meeting with your legislator, what messaging will have the greatest impact upon your representative, and more.
An extension of the solar Investment Tax Credit (ITC) would spark $87 billion in new private sector investment and add 113,000 American jobs over baseline estimates by 2030
According to Wood Mackenzie Power & Renewables, an extension of the solar investment tax credit would result in an additional 82 gigawatts (GW) of solar deployment over the next ten years, which would drive $87 billion in economic investment and create 113,000 U.S. solar jobs.
The following is the speech that Abigail Ross Hopper, president and CEO of the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) delivered at the opening general session at Solar Power International and North America Smart Energy Week.
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.
It’s easy to confuse ‘renewable’ with ‘sustainable.’ Both principles lie at the core of the solar energy industry. While energy from the sun is renewable, it’s our responsibility to ensure that, as our industry grows, we take the necessary steps to create a sustainable future throughout our entire value chain. Here, I cover three areas where we can drive meaningful change on the path to sustainability.
WASHINGTON D.C. - Following is a statement from SEIA's vice president of regulatory affairs, Katherine Gensler, on the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission's (FERC) proposed changes to its PURPA implementation rules:
SEIA has set a bold vision for solar energy to account for 20% of all U.S. electricity generation by 2030. To get there, the industry will need to deploy nearly 400 gigawatts (GW) of solar in the next 10 years. Installations at that scale will require an unprecedented amount of manufacturing, from cells and modules to racking and inverters. At SEIA, we know it’s critical to take advantage of this opportunity and establish a vibrant and sophisticated solar supply chain here at home.
