SEMI PV Group Announces PV Lobby Day

SEMI has a strong record on lobbying in support of pro-solar policies, helping to achieve an eight-year extension of the investment tax credit and a host of positive provisions included in the economic stimulus bill. To build on these efforts, we are organizing a solar-specific lobby day for October 1, 2009.

Energy policy will be a key issue in Washington this fall. As Congress debates a comprehensive climate change/energy bill, important issues related to solar energy will be part of the mix. Policymakers are considering adopting renewable energy standards, creating a Green Bank and several other policy initiatives.

Participation is open to PV Group Members. (Attendance by non-members will be considered.)

If you are interested in participating in the PV Lobby Day, please contact Maggie Hershey ( in the SEMI Washington office with the following information:

  • Your contact information (name, title, company, address, email, phone)
  • Your company’s top 2-3 PV public policy priorities
  • Location of your solar-related facilities in the United States

Please send this initial information by September 4. Ms. Hershey will contact you with additional details regarding participation and logistics.
