Fundraiser for Maryland State Delegate Sally Jameson

Solar has made tremendous strides in the Mid-Atlantic over the last few years, and MDV-SEIA has led the policy changes that have created the solar markets in Maryland, D.C., and Virginia.

In the last two years alone, MDV SEIA’s leadership has resulted in increased state mandated requirements as well as increased penalties for non-compliance, creation of a solar thermal market, improvements to net metering, and game changing gains in the deployment of these green energy technologies. This past year MDV-SEIA succeeded in expanding the District’s RPS to 50% and participated on the steering committee of a working group in Virginia known as the “Rubin Group”, which three successful bills that expand solar in the Commonwealth. MDV-SEIA’s advocacy in the state of Maryland resulted in the vote to override the Governor’s veto of the Clean Energy Jobs Act, saving thousands of solar jobs.
