Update on PASEIA’s most important policy initiative this September: SOLAR LEGISLATION!

We must now mobilize both the manpower and finances to lobby for a solar bill for Pennsylvania.

Please visit the members area of the MSEIA website or email paseia@mseia.net to get copies of the following documents:

1. Notes from a steering committee call re: Strategy and Background for the Solar Bill.

2. MOST IMPORTANTLY: A FUNDRAISING LETTER which we need to start getting out to all of our contacts ASAP, in order to mobilize the $25,000 required to finance our efforts to pass the bill. Contact your suppliers, distributors, partners, and fellow members, encouraging them to contribute to ensuring PA’s solar future. Please let us know who is willing and interested in taking an active role in supporting this initiative, and hope that all of you will consider supporting it financially as well.

IF YOU HAVE NOT RENEWED YOUR MEMBERSHIP FOR 2010, PLEASE DO SO AT THIS CRITICAL TIME! A membership application can be found at www.mseia.net, and if you have contacts that are considering joining, please urge them to do so NOW to support this initiative. Membership is critical to PASEIA being able to support this policy work and lobbying.

In addition to fundraising, please let us know if you will be willing to join a lobby day(s) in Harrisburg and make calls to your representatives, representatives in whose districts you have projects and customers (particularly in the SEast – Chester, Bucks and Delaware counties) and local media and Chambers of Commerce. All of these avenues are important to getting the bill passed, please keep us posted.

Thank you!

Kira Costanza
Interim Steering Committee
