WASHINGTON, D.C. — In response to an anonymous petition for circumvention tariffs on solar imports from Southeast Asia, the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA), the national trade group for the U.S. solar and storage industry, sent a letter to U.S. Department of Commerce Secretary Gina Raimondo to refute the credibility of this baseless case.
A group of anonymous companies that are trying to consolidate and limit the U.S. market for solar panels has made false allegations against the Solar Energy Industries Association in their petitions to get the Commerce Department to open an investigation into circumvention of anti-dumping/countervailing duties.
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.
WASHINGTON D.C. — The Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) submitted comments this week in response to a July Advanced Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (ANOPR) issued by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) on transmission reforms and new interconnection rules. The ANOPR presents an opportunity to address several transmission, interconnection and cost allocation issues, clearing the way for more equitable market access for solar and energy storage.
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.
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.
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.
