Solar Industry Urges Quick Release of SMART Program
SEBANE and solar coalition partners CCSA, Mass Solar, NECEC, SEIA, and Vote Solar have signed a letter to Secretary of Energy and Environmental Affairs Matthew Beaton to urge swift action on the impending release of the Solar Massachusetts Renewable Target (SMART) program. Citing uncertainties as a result of bureaucratic delays, the solar parties urge the Baker-Polito Administration and the Massachusetts Department of Public Utilities (DPU) to consider the health of the solar industry as well as its benefits to the Commonwealth at large in launching these new solar incentives. In addition, the parties state that “with net metering caps reached in three utility territories in the Commonwealth, additional delays in SMART program implementation will cause further loss of good, local jobs.” Read the entire letter below, and MassLive coverage of the industry request.
SEBANE stands in the ready to assist all of our members with the SMART program transition. We will be following the process closely and providing updates regularly as the program gets underway. If we can’t answer your questions, we can direct you to the right person who can.
