Becoming a MDV-SEIA Member

Solar energy markets in the mid-Atlantic region are evolving quickly: being successful means making the right choices and business decisions, based on a working knowledge of the market conditions and policy landscapes. Joining MDV-SEIA offers a unique opportunity to be networked into a trade association whose members have the depth of experience and savvy needed to build markets and create healthy competition for companies large and small.

Want to join us? Fill out a membership application today!

We analyze and communicate the market impacts of state and local energy policy, but more importantly, we help to shape these policies in Maryland, the District of Columbia, and Virginia. We create numerous opportunities for sharing information and advice. Our voice is an increasingly powerful one, as our member companies grow in number and size. Your membership and support will only broaden and deepen our collective strength.
