Sol Systems CEO Yuri Horwitz has been elected to the Board of Directors for the national Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA). The election results were announced last week following a vote by SEIA’s membership at-large at its board meeting in Austin, TX.
“Solar is now the fastest-growing source of energy in the United States, and there’s no question that the strong leadership by SEIA’s Board of Directors has been instrumental to that growth,” Rhone Resch, President and CEO of SEIA, said in the press release announcing the new Board. “We welcome the expertise and experience of these industry leaders as we seize upon the massive potential that lies ahead for the solar industry.”
Horwitz’s election comes at a pivotal time for the solar industry, which faces a step-down of the solar investment tax credit (ITC) at the end of 2016. The race to 2017 is on as the industry pushes towards for a multi-year extension of the ITC, or at the very least, commence construction language to ensure a stable investment climate for the booming asset class.
Thanks to everyone who voted for Yuri. We look forward to working for you and alongside of you to advocate for the extension of the solar ITC and other important issues that drive our industry forward.
“A fundamental question for each us is whether the future is crafted for us, or whether we craft that future,” wrote Horwitz in a post urging support for the ITC extension. “Let’s build the industry into all that it can be.”
