Rhone Resch said the Solar Energy Industries Association's priorities match the president's. 

Rhone Resch of the Solar Energy Industries Association sees a robust clean-energy industry as important to America's future. Here is what he said about the State of the Union address:

"In tonight’s State of the Union address, President Obama laid out a vision for the American energy economy that is in line with what SEIA is working to achieve – a robust clean energy industry that powers our homes and businesses while growing our economy and protecting our environment. Energy is a primary input to our nation’s economic system, so it’s appropriate that President Obama is placing emphasis on developing our nation’s robust clean energy resources to help rebuild the nation’s economy.

We are especially encouraged by the president’s commitment to securing America’s place as a leader in clean energy innovation throughout the world. President Obama understands that the stakes are high and we must not fall behind other nations as the world shifts to emissions-free clean energy technologies like solar."
