SEIA Applauds DOE Efforts to Reduce Solar Red Tape

Washington, D.C. – SEIA President and CEO Rhone Resch released the following statement today after the Department of Energy (DOE) moved forward with the next round of its Rooftop Solar Challenge:


"We commend Secretary Moniz and the Department of Energy for their continued efforts to cut red tape and help bring down solar soft costs relating to permitting and installation. The Rooftop Solar Challenge is designed to reduce bureaucracy, making it easier, faster and more affordable for homeowners and businesses to install solar systems. The U.S. residential solar market continues to grow, creating good-paying American jobs and spurring local economies. But this growth could be jeopardized in the future unless something is done soon to eliminate needless red tape."
