MSEIA Membership Benefits- rework August 2012

Whether you are a solar energy manufacturer, dealer, distributor, contractor, installer, architect, consultant, marketer, MSEIA membership will provide you with critical information, advocacy, education, and networking opportunities that will grow your business and ensure the long-term success of the solar industry.

 

Advocacy, Lobbying & Legal Intervention : MSEIA officers, volunteers, and consultants lobby policy-makers, state and federal agencies, and elected officials to educate them on the policy changes and incentives required to grow solar.

In 2011 & 2012,  in NJ, MSEIA  lobbied for continuation of EDC SREC financing programs in light of lack of long term SREC contracts in SREC marketplace; MSEIA had numerous meetings with assemblymen and senators to stress importance of bill s1925 in avoiding solar industry meltdown in 2012 and to  convince them to provide 4YRS of acceleration, not 3 YRS;

Met with union leaders to educate them to the fact that there was only limited space in the solar RPS for Grid Supply Projects

Met with Rate Counsel to present analysis of solar oversupply and stress the need for 4 Yrs of solar RPS acceleration

Met with NJ Governor’s Chief of Staff and others to communicate necessity of bill to avoid thousands of solar industry job losses

All of this effort led to subsequent passage of the “solar resurrection bill” s1925 in which MSEIA played an instrumental role. MSEIA continues to work on building support to  increase the New Jersey solar RPS to a much higher level.

 

Breaking News & Updates : We keep our members informed on critical policy developments, incentives and rebates, RFPs, job opportunities, public meetings and other important news through member updates, action-alerts, newsletters and our website.
