SEIA urges ‘collaborative approach’ to solving America's problems

 BY RHONE RESCH. With widespread voter dissatisfaction evident in Tuesday’s national and state elections, Rhone Resch, president and CEO of the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA), 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," Resch stated. "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 pundits analyze the results of Tuesday’s elections, Resch is calling attention to an important mandate: "Polls consistently show that 9 out of 10 Americans want to see an expanded use of solar energy nationwide," he stated. "We stand ready to work with Congress, our nation’s governors and state legislatures to make that a reality.”

As one of the fastest-growing industries in America, solar is a shining example of how stable, consistent and reliable public policies are paying huge dividends for the US economy and the environment, Resch stated. Specifically, he pointed to effective policies, such as the solar Investment Tax Credit (ITC) and Net Energy Metering (NEM).
