New California Law Will Help Expand Solar Deployment

"SEIA applauds Gov. Brown for his unwavering commitment to clean energy.

WASHINGTON, D.C. – SEIA President and CEO Rhone Resch released the following statement today after California Gov. Jerry Brown signed landmark energy legislation AB 327 into law:


"SEIA applauds Gov. Brown for his unwavering commitment to clean energy. His efforts to reduce carbon emissions across California will have a positive and profound impact on the state's future. This law provides a clear pathway for the continued growth of solar generation in California, which ranks #1 in the nation in total installed solar capacity with 3,761 megawatts (MW) – three times more than any other state. What's more, solar now provides nearly 44,000 good-paying jobs across the state, while saving money for hundreds of thousands of Californians on their utility bills. Gov. Brown should be congratulated for recognizing the importance of clean solar energy to both California's economy and its environment."
