Read the Memo (143.27 KB)

The federal government, and FERC in particular, has an exciting opportunity in 2021 and beyond to spur innovation and deployment of solar energy technologies that will increase resilience and decrease the costs and emissions of the American energy system. With the leadership of President Biden, who shares the industry’s goal to aggressively deploy solar energy across the country, FERC can be a key catalyst for the clean energy growth needed to address climate change, stimulate the U.S. economy, and support frontline communities who are most vulnerable to environmental degradation.

In this policy memo, SEIA outlines the solar industry's top 3 priorities at FERC in the coming year, which are well-aligned with those of the new administration:

  1. Capacity market reform
  2. Interconnection reform
  3. Promoting new regional markets where they do not exist today, particularly in the Southeast and West
