Recognizing the need for a clear vision and bold action, the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) has set a new goal for the solar industry: to make solar account for 20 percent of all U.S. electricity generation by 2030. To get there, SEIA has designated the 2020s the Solar+ Decade, recognizing the fact that the industry will need to both aggressively pursue policies to facilitate solar deployment while also collaborating with other technologies to make it happen.
The Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) and The Solar Foundation (TSF) are committed to promoting a diverse and inclusive workforce in the solar industry.
The U.S. Solar Industry Diversity Study 2019 is an in-depth look at diversity, inclusion, and equity in the solar industry. It includes new data on wages, advancement, and career pathways for women and people of color. This study was released by The Solar Foundation in partnership with the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA). It looks at diversity and inclusion strategies now in place at solar firms, and it identifies ways the industry can improve.
Solar is an energy solution that provides clean, reliable electricity, increases consumer choice, and helps homeowners and business owners save money on their utility bills. SEIA works to ensure that the solar industry fosters practices that protect consumers, expands solar access to all communities, and promotes a diverse and growing workforce.
