WASHINGTON, D.C. — Following is a statement by Abigail Ross Hopper, president and CEO of the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) on President Biden's announcement on clean energy manufacturing in the United States.
The Commerce Department’s baseless solar tariff investigation is front and center in the news, and political leaders are stepping up to protect their constituents and voice opposition. In letters to President Biden, lawmakers from both sides of the aisle are urging the Department of Commerce to unfreeze the solar industry and immediately end the Auxin Solar tariff probe. In a telling sign, these lawmakers represent 190 million Americans, or 57% of the U.S. population.
Today a bipartisan group of 19 governors sent a letter to President Biden and Commerce Secretary Gina Raimondo urging the Biden administration to expedite its review of the anti-circumvention solar tariff case.
WASHINGTON, D.C. — Solar installation forecasts for 2022 and 2023 are being cut by 46% due to the Biden administration’s circumvention case against solar imports from Southeast Asia. According to new analysis by the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA), the case will result in a drop of 24 gigawatts (GW) of planned solar capacity over the next two years, which is more solar than the industry installed in all of 2021.
WASHINGTON, D.C. — After determining last month that the Section 201 tariffs on solar cells and modules should be extended, the U.S. International Trade Commission issued its remedy recommendation to President Biden today. The President will make a final decision on whether to extend the job-killing tariffs or end them and allow U.S. clean energy deployment to soar. Following is a statement from Abigail Ross Hopper, president and CEO of the Solar Energy Industries Association, on the Commission’s proposal:
WASHINGTON, D.C. — Today President Biden and the U.S. Department of Energy released an Issue Brief on solar energy research, deployment and workforce priorities. The report details a number of priorities that are important to the solar industry.
WASHINGTON, D.C. — Following is a statement from John Smirnow, vice president of market strategy and general counsel at the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) on the August 2, 2021 Section 201 petition:
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.
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.
WASHINGTON, D.C. — Seventeen leading renewable energy CEOs are calling on President Biden to rescind the Trump Administration’s October 2020 solar proclamation, which improperly increased tariffs on solar panels and rescinds the exclusion for bifacial solar panels.
