SEIA Applauds Sen. Wyden's Technology-Neutral Legislation

“By providing long-term, steady federal energy tax policy, this legislation would offer the stability that all businesses in the renewable energy space need to grow.

WASHINGTON, D.C. - The Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) today commended Finance Committee Ranking Democrat Ron Wyden (D-OR) for reintroducing his legislation to provide a technology-neutral approach to smart, job-creating incentives for the deployment of clean energy. Following is a statement from SEIA's president and CEO, Abigail Ross Hopper:


"By providing long-term, steady federal energy tax policy, this legislation would offer the stability that all businesses in the renewable energy space need to grow.

"While SEIA's highest legislative priority in tax reform remains maintaining the phasedown through 2021 of the residential and business solar investment tax credits enacted in the Omnibus Spending Act of 2015, we commend Senator Wyden for recognizing how crucial it is for America to maintain tax policies that are effective at creating jobs and producing clean, domestic energy.

"We see the Wyden bill as a major step forward and are heartened by this and similar efforts to devise a technology neutral approach to long-term clean energy tax incentives also being explored by Rep. Tom Reed (R-NY) in the House."
