SEIA is leading a national coalition to extend the solar Investment Tax Credit (ITC). This is a significant undertaking that will require support from across the solar industry, and we need your help to get it done.

The solar investment tax credit (ITC) is one of the most successful clean energy tax policies ever passed. It has enjoyed bipartisan support and created more than 200,000 jobs and $140 billion in private investment.

We’re asking you to make your support for solar known on social media and to engage with your state and federal policymakers to seek positive change for our industry.

HELP SEIA #DEFENDTHEITC

The most powerful way to demonstrate the value of the solar industry to members of Congress is to meet with them face-to-face. Whether it is a site visit or a meeting in your representative’s office, your stories are our strongest advocacy tools.

The August recess is coming up, which is a perfect opportunity to schedule meetings with your elected officials while they are back in their home states and districts. Let your representatives know that you support the extension of the solar Investment Tax Credit (ITC) through the following actions:

  • Visit SEIA’s Advocacy Toolkit for best practices and tips on setting up meetings with lawmakers
  • Reach out to your representatives’ local offices to schedule meetings. If you need help scheduling meetings, reach out to Heather Whitpan at hwhitpan@seia.org
  • Join the conversation on social media using #DefendTheITC. Click here to download a toolkit with graphics and resources to share with your network.


To successfully #DefendTheITC, this campaign needs your full buy-in and support. We will be reaching out periodically with ways for you to get involved and take action, including more resources to stay vocal in person and online.
