Statement on Senate Letter Requesting Extension for Safe Harbor Requirements

Following is a statement from Abigail Ross Hopper, president and CEO of the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) on the letter:

'We greatly appreciate the leadership shown by Senators Murkowski, Collins and Tillis to advance clean energy projects. Their letter to Treasury lays out policies that definitely will support solar projects and create American jobs. Solar energy can add opportunity and economic growth in red states and blue, and the bipartisan support we have seen for this policy tweak by Treasury demonstrates the benefits solar brings to all Americans regardless of their politics. We look forward to working with Treasury to address problems in the solar market created by this COVID-19 crisis.'
