Boston, MA – A trade case with the United States International Trade Commission brought by Suniva and SunWorld, is threatening to crush the solar industry- especially the hard working solar installers.

88,000 jobs would be lost nationwide. Many small and medium-sized businesses will be hurt.

BlueWave opposes this trade case and has signed onto letters with the Solar Energy Industries Association in New York, Massachusetts and the South Carolina Clean Energy Business Alliance. This is an economic issue and we have to protect American jobs. Keep the solar industry strong.

For more information about the trade case and the solar industries’ stance on it please see the Solar Energy Industries Association’s latest statement.

 

Please see the letters that BlueWave has signed onto below:

Boston MA- July 14, 2017

BlueWave supports the solar industry coalition’s public comments regarding the Solar Massachusetts Renewable Target (SMART) Program emergency regulations and we have submitted like comments advocating improvements to the program.

We urge the Baker administration to consider our collective concerns about the SMART program. The improvements to the proposed SMART regulations offered by the solar industry and BlueWave will ensure that Massachusetts continues to lead in creating solar jobs, reducing energy costs for consumers and combating climate change.

We believe that the proposed improvements are not only vital for continuing the success of solar in Massachusetts, but imperative for maintaining Massachusetts’ clean energy leadership on the national level.

Please see the industry association press release here and read BlueWave’s comments on the SMART program here, BlueWave Letter to DOER on SMART Regulations 17-0711.
