OpEd : Texas Solar to Speed Economic Recovery With Safe Jobs, Affordable Power

Solar is providing a triple win today of providing safe jobs, lowering costs for consumers, and improving air quality – all needed now more than ever to combat the pandemic! In our OpEd published today by the Morning Consult with McCarthy Building Companies, Inc.‘s Scott Canada, and Swinerton Renewable Energy‘s George Hershman, we examine how Texas – as a case study – is benefiting from a strong solar industry, with over 10,000 jobs.

To keep building on this success in the U.S., we as an industry must support the Solar Energy Industries Association‘s important work. Currently, the Moving Forward Act seeks to address COVID impacts by extending the ITC for 5 years, having a Direct Pay option for ITC, and other measures. Read our OpEd here: https://bit.ly/2YYmcPI

If you are in solar in the U.S. and not supporting SEIA, you are a free-loader. I have the pleasure of serving on the SEIA board with Scott and George. Please join us to continue driving solar forward.
