SEIA needs to represent ALL Solar constituencies under The Sun ... INCLUDING residential and commercial (of ALL stripes) solar.

Distributed solar energy also provide added value of protecting wildlife and their habitat by obviating further encroachment on already shrinking wildlife habitat. Let's go clean energy, but also be sure to make the transition equitable and sustainable for everyone

Small- and medium-sized solar installers cannot be overshadowed by utility-scale interests. Distributed solar is too important to our energy security and environmental footprint to allow utilities to control the conversation. Their incentives are often in direct conflict with the distributed model.

For many years SEIA has only represented the interests of its largest "Pay to Play" members and Executive Board and continues to intervene in state Solar Policy issues with no coordination with state chapters.

Thanks for adding your voice.

1. SEIA's pay-to-play structure prevents it from representing the broad interests of the whole industry. It is substantially hurting the reputation of SEIA, driving many potential members away, and leaving SEIA vulnerable to actions alleging fraud or anti-trust behavior. SEIA's financials reveal that it's not working financially. SEIA should end pay-to-play, broaden its membership and financial base, and make its governance fully democratic, just like its state chapters.

2. SEIA should not compete with its own state and regional chapters in their states. Doing so harms the chapters' voice in their states and harms their membership and financial efforts. It is also very confusing to legislators and policy makers, and ultimately harmful to industry goals.

Thanks for adding your voice.

I am a rooftop solar customer and enthusiast and understand that the benefits of rooftop solar over utility-scale are being overlooked by regulators and advocates. Thank you for your work on this!
