SEPA COMMENT ON NY SOLAR PARTNERSHIP PROPOSAL

Utility-Solar Industry Collaboration Can Yield Innovative Solutions

WASHINGTON, DC -- Julia Hamm, President and CEO of the Smart Electric Power Alliance (SEPA) has released the following statement on the announcement of the Solar Progress Partnership's proposal for a new policy framework for solar transactions in New York:


"The Smart Electric Power Alliance congratulates the members of the Solar Power Partnership and the Advanced Energy Economy Institute on their joint proposal for solar transactions in New York, aimed at maintaining sustainable and equitable solar market growth in the state.

"While SEPA does not endorse any particular policy proposals, we believe that the partnership process in New York embodies the kind of compromise and innovation that can occur when utility and solar industry stakeholders truly listen to each other's concerns. A similar collaborative approach is one of the foundations of our 51st State Initiative, which provides a platform for stakeholder idea-sharing and electricity marketplace transformation throughout the United States."
