With widespread voter dissatisfaction evident in Tuesday's national and state elections, Rhone Resch, president and CEO of the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA), today urged Republicans, Democrats and independents to take a more "collaborative approach" to solving many of the nation's pressing problems:

"As a national association of leading businesses – with more than 1,000 member companies located in 48 states – we remain completely committed to finding commonsense ways to create new jobs, stimulate economic development, remove market barriers and improve our nation's energy security. With the elections now behind us, it's critically important for our leaders in Washington, as well as our state capitals, to put aside their differences and work together to find real solutions that will grow our economy and put more people to work. As one of the fastest-growing industries in America, solar is a shining example of how stable, consistent and reliable public policies – such as the solar Investment Tax Credit (ITC) and Net Energy Metering (NEM) – are paying huge dividends for our economy and environment. As pundits analyze the results of Tuesday's elections, here is one important mandate to remember: Polls consistently show that 9 out of 10 Americans want to see an expanded use of solar energy nationwide. We stand ready to work with Congress, our nation's governors and state legislatures to make that a reality."
