Blymer and SEIA continue to advance solar energy in California and beyond

With projects ranging from feasibility studies and conceptual designs to the engineering of entire facilities, Blymyer is a leading partner in a broad range of solution initiatives throughout the U.S. and worldwide.

With more than 500 projects in our solar portfolio, and having engineered about 15% of the total solar capacity in the U.S., our firm leads the industry in both utility-scale (electricity sold to wholesale utility buyers) and distributed-generation (electricity sold to end-use consumers) solar projects with end-to-end design and energy services.

The value of SEIA affiliation

As a longstanding and active member of SEIA (Solar Energy Industries Association), Blymyer is also actively involved with initiatives to hasten solar adoption in California and the U.S.

“As one of the leading trade associations in the solar industry, SEIA has been instrumental in building a comprehensive vision for solar initiatives through research, education and advocacy,” explains Blymyer President Mike Rantz. “The educational resources and networking opportunities SEIA provides are invaluable to our firm. Members of our team find the events the organization sponsors excellent ways to stay current on the latest issues and trends.”

“Our collective efforts are paying off,” continues Rantz. “The growth of solar in the past three years has been impressive.” In 2023 alone, more than half of the electricity added to the nation’s grid capacity came from solar, the first time in 80 years that a renewable energy account accounted for a majority of annual capacity additions—a testament to the efforts of the solar industry and organizations like SEIA.

About SEIA

Founded in 1974, The Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) is the national trade association for the solar and solar + storage industries. The organization is leading the transformation to a clean energy economy, creating the framework for solar to achieve 30% of U.S. electricity generation by 2030. SEIA works with its 1,000 member companies and other strategic partners to fight for policies that create jobs in every community and shape fair market rules that promote competition and the growth of reliable, low-cost solar power.
