Home / Policy


As an industry association that represents the entire solar value chain here in Tennessee, it is important to our members that TenneSEIA actively engage the policy development process. We actively pursue the creation of policies that provide for an environment that is conducive to private sector growth and job creation. Through our initiatives and policy work our main focus is to increase end-user demand and expand Tennessee’s solar manufacturing base. Through public-private partnerships, TenneSEIA is committed to making solar energy a mainstream energy source in the state of Tennessee. Our focus is to communicate the economic benefits of our industry and help decision makers realize the potential for industry growth.

Take Action

TenneSEIA depends on its amazing members and supporters to help us “TAKE ACTION” for solar energy. We encourage our members to engage in traditional advocacy activities including grassroots advocacy such as contacting state legislators and other government officials. As the legislative session begins, we will communicate regularly with members and supporters on ways to influence policy makers in support of this growing industry.
