Solar industry group lobbies for opening of solar and storage markets in the US

The Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) is hosting more than 100 solar executives in Washington D.C. to advocate for policies that open solar and storage markets and discuss strategy and direction for the leading trade association. The executives will participate in meetings with the federal government, attend SEIA’s board of directors meeting, meet with solar champions on the Hill, and participate in an Affiliate Summit as SEIA continues to strengthen its public affairs presence.

On June 5th, SEIA’s board of directors met with Biden administration representatives from the White House, Treasury, Interior, Labor, and the Energy Dept. to discuss the top issues facing the solar and storage industry, including implementation of the Inflation Reduction Act. Solar executives also shared success stories fueled by the IRA and discussed how the solar and storage industry can help President Biden meet his ambitious clean energy goals. 

On June 6th, SEIA’s board of directors met to discuss strategies that will drive the industry’s progress in both the near-term and long-term. SEIA’s board of directors is the largest it has ever been in the organization’s history and now boasts over 70 board members.

“This is a big week for solar advocacy as we drive forward with one voice and a clear vision for the work ahead” said SEIA president and CEO Abigail Ross Hopper. “The American solar and storage industry is on the precipice of incredible progress, but if we continue to get tripped up on implementation guidance and persistent challenges like interconnection, we’re going to have a difficult time making progress.”

Solar enjoys bipartisan support on the Hill and will be meeting with members of Congress on both sides of the aisle. 

On June 9th, SEIA will host an affiliate summit that will bring together the organization’s nationwide affiliate network. These state and regional solar trade groups from across the country will join SEIA to discuss best practices for association management and the shared opportunities and challenges facing the industry. SEIA currently has 22 affiliates that span a variety of different states and localities. 

“Our board of directors and regional affiliates are our conduits in communities nationwide” Ms Hopper added. “With SEIA at the helm, solar leaders will continue to share the incredible story of our growing industry with local and federal leaders.”
