Statement from Gregory Wetstone, President and CEO of the American Council on Renewable Energy (ACORE):
“We applaud the 22 senators on this letter for speaking out on behalf of the American solar industry and everyone impacted by this baseless investigation. As the senators note, the Department of Commerce’s circumvention inquiry is causing massive disruption within the renewable sector, including significant project delays, cancellations and layoffs that will inevitably lead to increased electricity costs for American families at a time when the cost of living is already sky high. A setback of this magnitude also undermines the Biden administration’s own clean energy goals, making it all but impossible to achieve the emission reductions scientists say are necessary to avoid the worst impacts of climate change. We stand with this bipartisan group of senators strongly urging the administration to make an expedited preliminary determination that rejects the petitioner’s request for new retroactive tariffs that will needlessly upend clean energy progress for years to come.”
For more than 20 years, the American Council on Renewable Energy (ACORE) has been the nation’s premier pan-renewable nonprofit organization. ACORE unites finance, policy and technology to accelerate the transition to a renewable energy economy. For more information, please visit www.acore.org.
