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.
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.
Today the nonprofit Center for Resource Solutions and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) unveiled the Green Power Leadership Awards (GPLA) to recognize outstanding achievements in the clean energy marketplace. This year, the GPLAs honored SEIA as a winner in their Market Development category.
As the solar industry continues to grow and America moves toward a bright clean energy future, there’s a critical need to make sure our electric grid can keep up. Right now, we have an historic opportunity to uplift every American community by growing the clean energy economy, but we need bold infrastructure investments to support it with technology solutions and a 21st century electric grid.
President Biden is right: When you think of climate action, you should think jobs. In order to fully decarbonize our electric grid by 2035, the solar workforce must reach 900,000 Americans. This is an historic opportunity, but we must take steps to ensure that workforce reflects the diversity of our country and allow the rising tide of the solar industry to lift all boats.
As leaders in the solar energy industry, we know that every solar panel we install brings us one step closer to stopping the worst effects of the climate crisis. However, in order to meet this moment, the solar sector needs a strong, diverse and talented workforce to power our clean energy future. Because our employees are the backbone of our industry, we are committed to creating high quality, well-paying, stable jobs that families can count on.
As the White House and Congress work on infrastructure and budget legislation, families across the country are getting ready for their kids to go back to school. We now have a real opportunity to lead by example and make significant investments in clean energy infrastructure that can power our public facilities, like schools, for decades to come.
If Congress prioritizes smart, long-term solar policies, we can tackle the climate crisis and ensure a bright future for generations of Americans to come.
The U.S. solar industry achieved a critical milestone this year, surpassing 100 gigawatts (GW) of installed electric generating capacity. While the industry continues to experience tremendous growth, rising costs in the solar sector pose a major threat to this momentum. Fortunately, there are smart policy solutions, like investments in domestic manufacturing, that can help.
America is facing an unprecedented opportunity to enact bold federal policies to decarbonize our electric grid and generate hundreds of thousands of quality clean energy jobs. To achieve this, SEIA is mobilizing a nationwide campaign urging leaders in Washington to act.
