WASHINGTON, D.C. - Following is a statement from Sean Gallagher, vice president of state affairs for the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA), the solar industry's national trade group, on Minnesota Governor Mark Daytons veto of HF 234/SF 141:


"SEIA and the solar industry commend Governor Dayton for vetoing legislation that would have stripped rural Minnesota residents of critical consumer protection and hindered solars growth in the state. In doing so, Dayton stood up for both consumers and economic growth.

"Due to policies championed by the Governor, Minnesota emerged as a national leader in solar energy last year. The state installed more community solar than any other state in the country. The Governors decision ensures that more Minnesotans can access solar energy and that clean energy jobs continue to grow."
