WASHINGTON, D.C. — Today the White House released a fact sheet outlining their clean energy deployment priorities. Following is a statement from Abigail Ross Hopper, president and CEO of the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) on this development.
SACRAMENTO, Calif. and WASHINGTON, D.C. — Today the California Public Utilities Commission issued a proposal that will create the highest solar tax in the country and tarnish the state’s clean energy legacy. The proposal imposes fees on solar and storage customers, making solar and storage more expensive and less accessible to all Californians.
RAHLEIGH, NC and WASHINGTON, D.C. — Over the past few years, the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) advocated for energy choice and solar energy expansion in North Carolina through policies that work for the region.
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. and WASHINGTON D.C. — Legislation filed yesterday in the Florida Legislature aims to end net metering for rooftop solar customers, effectively shutting down this key sector of the state economy and undermining energy freedom for tens of thousands of Floridians. National and state solar advocates are calling on lawmakers to reject this legislation and allow the state’s rooftop solar market to continue growing: Following is a statement from Will Giese, southeast regional director for the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA):
PHOENIX and WASHINGTON, D.C. — Today the Arizona Corporation Commission decided to eliminate a decade-old grid access fee for residential solar customers in Arizona. The grid access fee, which was imposed by Arizona Public Service, averaged about $100 per year per solar customer and unfairly targeted solar customers under the guise that it cost more to provide them with electricity service.
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.
