The Northeast Solar Energy Market Coalitionnesemc-wide-logo-small (NESEMC) brings together solar energy business associations and other stakeholders in the Northeast to harmonize regional solar energy policy and advance the solar energy market. We are funded by the U.S. Department of Energy SunShot Initiative as a cooperative agreement through 2017. Their mission is to speed the creation of a more thriving and efficient regional market for solar photovoltaic energy generation in the Northeast by encouraging and involving regional solar businesses in the standardization of market policy to lower costs and increase solar market opportunity through education founded on robust analysis and regional coordination of their member organizations.
