SEIA Enters New Digital Era, Launching New Website and Online Member Community

Featuring new interactive maps that allow users to quickly drill down on exactly what’s happening state-by-state and easily navigable content on a variety of topics ranging from Solar Policy to Trade to Finance & Tax, the new seia.org has become a true one-stop-hub for the solar industry.

LAS VEGAS, Nev. - As thousands of people descend on Las Vegas for Solar Power International 2017, the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) rolled out a new website as part of the introduction of a full suite of new digital tools. This bigger, brighter and bolder digital presence properly reflects the cutting-edge technology that solar energy represents and better serves the industry and its customers.


SEIA's new website, www.seia.org, is a vast improvement both visually and organizationally, resulting in an enhanced user experience. Featuring new interactive maps that allow users to quickly drill down on exactly what's happening state-by-state and easily navigable content on a variety of topics ranging from Solar Policy to Trade to Finance & Tax, the new seia.org has become a true one-stop-hub for the solar industry.

"The solar industry has always been ahead of the curve and it's important to us that we have a digital presence that mirrors that innovative style," said Abigail Ross Hopper, SEIA's president and CEO.

In addition to its new website, SEIA announced the launch of the SEIA Sphere, a first-of-its-kind platform to facilitate B2B connections and networking within the solar industry. By joining this online community, SEIA members will have the opportunity to collaborate, make deals, and exchange valuable insight and tips with one another.

"Together, these two websites represent a tremendous opportunity to support solar companies, grow the industry, educate the public and advocate for the expansion of solar energy nationwide," Hopper said. "By using these new tools, you'll be armed with accurate information and have an immediate leg up personally and professionally."

To participate in the SEIA Sphere, you must be a SEIA member. For information on how to become a member, please contact membership@seia.org.

LG Solar Unveils NeON R with Enhanced Aesthetics and Energy Savings

The NeON R module features "Back Contact" cell technology delivering an entirely black panel that is aesthetically pleasing and energy efficient. The cell's seamless, surface blends perfectly into nearly all rooftop designs while the module's electrodes are positioned on the rear of the cell. Using LG's N-type cell structure, the panels produce 365W of energy, up to 7.3kWp, compared to 5.8kWp of the p-type cell. The module's new design minimizes LID, thereby delivering a longer lifespan and increased energy output.
