Solar Industry Stands Ready to Ramp up Efforts in California

WASHINGTON, D.C.– With the announcement today that California's San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station will be shut down permanently, Rhone Resch, SEIA president & CEO, issued the following statement:


"The solar industry stands ready to work with state and utility officials on a long-term, cost-effective plan to increase electrical generation to Californians by adding new solar capacity. Whether it's through rooftop solar systems on homes, businesses and schools, or large utility-scale projects, solar offers the state a clean, safe, affordable and reliable source of energy, which is literally inexhaustible. This will not only benefit ratepayers over the long run, but it will also improve the reliability of California's grid – especially during peak demand times and during the state's long, hot summers."
