SEIA releases solar coverage targets for first 100 days of Biden administration

House of Representatives passes Clean Energy Jobs and Innovation Act

The Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) publishes a set of guidelines and executive actions that President-elect Biden and newly elected Congress are expected to respond to during their first 100 days in office.

The Solar Vision is in line with SEIA’s goals in the Solar + Decade and will put America on the path to 100% clean energy. It sets out three strategic requirements for the solar industry, each with numerous policy proposals. These needs develop aggressive clean energy goals and comprehensive carbon policies. Investments in modern infrastructure and the necessary workforce; and ensuring access to clean and competitive energy markets.

One of the measures SEIA is most urgent to pursue is tax policy, which is rapidly expanding the use of solar energy to tackle the climate crisis, a trade policy that provides the solar industry with clarity and predictability and allows permits, cuts red tape and installs more solar panels quickly and at a lower cost.

“Our 100-day agenda aligns with President-elect Biden’s vision to rebuild better and represents a crucial opportunity to address the climate age moment with justice and justice on the front lines,” said Abigail Ross Hopper, President and CEO of Association of the Solar Energy Industry (SEIA). “Even when we face a likely divided government, every facet of this agenda has been supported by both parties. Now is the time to take action to provide Americans with economic opportunities that will encourage competition and address the climate crisis. “

You can find more details about the SEIA plan here:

  • The first part of The Solar Vision provides guidelines for promoting solar and storage provision and mitigating the climate impact. These include changes to the solar tax framework, CO2 pricing, the development of renewable energies in public areas, research and development.
  • To ensure we have the infrastructure and workforce to meet our climate goals, the second part will include support for underserved communities, employee training, low-income access to solar energy, transmission planning, grid upgrades, and other important solar + – Components like manufacturing and electric vehicles prioritized and remote approval.
  • The final guidelines emphasize the importance of fair market access, fair tax treatment, fair trade and regulation, and we want a level playing field for the vibrant US solar industry.

SEIA and its members will advocate the components of this agenda during the transition and the first 100 days of the Biden / Harris administration.
