What can our Federal government do to jump-start solar in our upcoming future?

You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.R. Buckminster Fuller

Our federal government can help build a thriving, equitable, and globally competitive clean energy economy that puts workers and communities first and leaves no one behind. The government can mobilize historic, transformative federal and private investments to continually enhance our energy revolution. We can use federal resources and authorities across all agencies to accelerate the development of a clean energy economy and deploy proven solutions. These solutions will create millions of jobs up and down the renewable energy chain. It will upgrade and make resilient our energy system and infrastructure. Thereby motivating renewable companies to develop and manufacture next-generation technologies to address the climate crisis right here in the United States.

The nation’s energy infrastructure is an investment in the collective economic future of America’s more resilient energy system which is vital to economic growth and security. One example is the worldwide adoption of bifacials, and the industry preferences has brought about concerns and interest in simulations detailing bifacial gains from 10% to 16% depending on surface and racking structures. Fixed structures were found to obtain higher bifacial gains than single-axis trackers. There are many new products just waiting to be commercialized to add efficiency and production to the projects coming on the horizon.
Most utilities would like to increase rates but are appropriately delaying any major rate design changes until 2022. This action will enable the residential solar industry to begin its recovery and rehire thousands of out of work people industry wide.  We know investing in clean energy is the best and quickest way to jumpstart our economy and get Americans, construction workers, factory workers, electricians, and solar energy technicians back on the job today, building a better economy for tomorrow.

The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission on Thursday unanimously rejected a plea to declare all state solar net-metering policies illegal, a victory for solar industry groups and state policymakers.  “We find that the petition does not identify a specific controversy or harm that the commission should address in a declaratory order,” FERC Chairman Neil Chatterjee said in Thursday’s FERC open meeting. The Commission appropriately declined to upend decades of its own precedent, and the state energy policies in place in over 40 states and utilized by over 2 million retail electricity customers that rely on that precedent, based on a set of hypothetical and generic grievances that failed to provide any facts or circumstances that would support massive federal preemption of state law.

Although many of us have gone about getting projects done no matter what federal, state, and or local governments do, it would be fantastic if we could get a consistent message and policy to add value, policy and security to the industry. We have another opportunity to vote and change what is happening by bringing in a new administration. An administration that does the right things about reducing and eventually removing the plants use of fossil fuels for energy. Let the science of renewables lead us to a new world where all energy is used via renewable sources.
