"To expand the use of all solar technologies in California and establish a sustainable industry for a clean energy future."
CALSEIA is funded by memberships through annual membership dues and fundraising events such as Solar Summerfest every year at Intersolar North America.
CALSEIA represents all facets of the industry spectrum:
Furthermore, CALSEIA currently has representatives for the following technologies:
In Washington, National SEIA performs similar activities, but with a national focus. SEIA and CALSEIA are separate associations. Membership in CALSEIA does not confer a membership in SEIA, and vice versa.
Solar associations are also working in other states, some of which also include the suffix “SEIA” in their names (for example OSEIA in Oregon and COSEIA in Colorado).
There are a number of other solar associations in California that are not affiliated with CALSEIA. CALSEIA coordinates with these other state solar associations as it sees fit.
