Statement of SEIA President Rhone Resch on Energy Developments in Congress

In a close vote, the Senate today was unable to pass energy legislation that included tax provisions important to the US solar industry.

In response to today's developments in the Senate, SEIA President Rhone Resch issued the following statement:


"In a close vote, the Senate today was unable to pass energy legislation that included tax provisions important to the US solar industry. Yet the partisanship that prevented this visionary measure from becoming law is unrelated to the solar provisions, which have strong bipartisan support in Congress and among the American people. Today the opponents to the bill have stalled the inevitable investment in carbon-free energy -- yet the sun will rise tomorrow.

"America's solar industry remains undeterred. SEIA will continue to pursue a long term extension of the solar investment tax credits (ITC) with increased intensity. We will work with our champions in Congress to ensure passage of long-term tax incentives that strengthen America's energy security, create hundreds of thousands of US jobs, and provide a key solution to climate change."
