Domestic Solar Industry Gains Could Influence Presidential Campaign Politics

Share:
TAMPA, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

As the U.S. presidential race gets underway, tremendous gains in the U.S. solar industry could influence energy policy discussions on the campaign trail. On the Move Systems (OTCQB: OMVS), a company focused on the development of profitable new solar energy technologies, is positioning itself to capitalize on continued public demand and political support for green technology.

The U.S. Solar Energy Trade Assessment 2011 report by the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) and GTM Research states that 2010 was a record year for the U.S. solar manufacturing industry. Exports totaled more than $5.6 billion, with China and Germany emerging as the leading destinations for U.S.-sourced solar components.

“The U.S. solar energy market continues to be a bright spot in an otherwise bleak economy. As the global solar industry continues to grow and evolve, the U.S. is seen more and more as a leading market – both in installations and in exports. Solar is a showcase industry of U.S. ingenuity. In 2010, we grew by over 100 percent, we achieved a significant positive trade balance, and we exported more goods and services to China than we imported,” said Rhone Resch, president and CEO of SEIA. “Solar energy is an industry invented in the U.S. that is helping our country reclaim our manufacturing leadership and creating tens of thousands of jobs. But to maintain our competitive advantage, we need innovative, proactive solutions from policymakers to match the investments being provided overseas to grow robust solar supply chains.

“Doing so will result in new jobs and opportunities for communities that have seen their factories close up shop in recent years,” he added.

Such positive economic news makes solar incentives an attractive proposition for politicians seeking answers to voters' concerns over energy costs and global warming.

“Solar innovations make sense for our country, our environment, and our bottom line,” said OMVS CEO Chet Gutowsky. “Solar energy is a true solution that addresses our nation's environmental and economic needs, and OMVS is working to capitalize on the industry's continued growth.”
