WASHINGTON, D.C. and SALT LAKE CITY, UT - The Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) and the Utah Solar Energy Association (USEA) jointly thanked Utah Gov. Gary Herbert and the Utah State Legislature for two new laws the industry advocated for that will help future solar homeowners through cost savings and increased consumer protection. Gov. Herbert signed both pieces of legislation into law this month.
A new growth industry is emerging in Utah, where residential solar installations in Q3 alone were equal to the amount installed in all last year. In addition, added solar capacity in Q3 was more than six times the capacity installed over Q3 2013, according to GTM Research and the Solar Energy Industries Association’s (SEIA) most recent U.S. Solar Market Insight® quarterly report.
