Taking part in a national "listening tour" conducted by the Environment Protection Agency (EPA), the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) today urged states to turn to solar energy to help meet new carbon pollution targets.
At a session this morning at EPA headquarters, SEIA's Katherine Stainken told agency officials: "SEIA generally supports the Clean Power Plan and is in support of a flexible approach that allows states to take advantage of solar as a compliance option as part of a balanced energy portfolio. Additionally, SEIA agrees with the EPA that renewable energy is part of the best system of emission reduction. Many states have proven that system-wide programs that require the implementation of renewable energy are extremely effective at reducing carbon emissions in an achievable, efficient and cost-effective manner." >>View Article
