The Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA), which represents 1,100 solar companies around the country has merged with the Solar Alliance in order to focus more on state-level policy issues. The focus on state-level policy will allow SEIA to speak in energy markets across the country and communicate that solar is cost competitive in all 50 states. As part of the merger, SEIA is establishing a department for state affairs, which will include staff from the Solar Alliance.

The Solar Alliance, which counts about three-dozen solar companies as members, works with state officials and policymakers to advocate for solar energy. The merger comes at a time when the solar industry faces a number of challenges, including an uncertain regulatory environment and competition from countries such as China, which has invested billions in renewable energy.
