SEIA Statement on 2018 Midterm Election Results

07 Nov 2018

The Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) welcomed new governors, state lawmakers and those elected to Congress, who will play a critical role in solar energy's future in the United States.

Following is a statement by Abigail Ross Hopper, president and CEO of the Solar Energy Industries Association: 

"This election, we've seen more proof that voters and elected officials of both parties recognize the tremendous benefits that solar brings to our economy, environment and the reliability of the grid. This trifecta is why solar has overwhelming public support.

"As evidenced again last night by several pro-solar candidates winning elections, voters want the government to do more to grow solar energy in the U.S. We look forward to working with all of the new and returning governors and Members of Congress on policies that will expand solar markets, grow jobs, and make solar's economic benefits available to more consumers and businesses."
