Diversity & Inclusion
SEIA values diversity, inclusion and equity within our organization and the promotion of these values across the solar industry. We believe that a diverse workforce creates a more resilient organization that supports a strong, equitable solar industry. SEIA envisions an industry that is committed to fostering a culture of inclusivity. We aim to achieve this by encouraging openness and transparency about diversity issues and progress. We will develop strategies, programs, and tools that seek to equalize opportunities within SEIA and allow for discussing and sharing best practices within the solar industry.
We define diversity to include — but not be limited to — difference by race, ethnicity, religion, gender, gender expression, sexual orientation, age, culture, ability, class, employment level, and political identity. SEIA’s definition of diversity is evolving and subject to expansion.
Low-Moderate Income Solar Principles
As the national solar trade association, SEIA encourages solutions to maximize access to solar energy to ALL families and communities. Historically, access to solar energy has been more difficult for Low-Moderate Income (LMI) households due, potentially, to a range of factors such as lack of home ownership, limited credit history, or poor credit. To allow broader access to the benefits of clean, affordable solar energy, SEIA has developed principles for our membership, policymakers, and other stakeholders in the solar economy.
