SEIA fights for free and fair trade to support the U.S. solar industry
American solar manufacturing is a diverse economic powerhouse that employs 38,000 workers.
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.
Just weeks after SEIA announced that Texas jumped to the #6 spot in state solar production rankings, more than 500 energy professionals gathered in Austin for the annual Solar Power Texas event last week.
Last week marked one year since the Trump administration implemented steep tariffs on imported solar cells and modules, ending nearly a year of turmoil and uncertainty for the solar industry and its quarter-of-a-million workers.
