Washington, D.C. – Today a group of U.S. senators introduced the Solar Energy Manufacturing for America Act, which establishes an advanced solar manufacturing tax credit designed to benefit manufacturers across the value chain.
The following statement can be attributed to Mark Bassett, chairman and chief executive officer of Hemlock Semiconductor Operations (HSC) in Hemlock, Mich.:
“We applaud Senator Jon Ossoff, Senator Debbie Stabenow, Senator Raphael Warnock and Senator Michael Bennet for introducing legislation that invests in U.S. manufacturing jobs. We believe the proposed advanced solar manufacturing production tax credit is a crucial step in building a strong American supply chain within the next decade. By incentivizing manufacturing directly, we can harness American ingenuity and continue to drive down solar deployment costs, while creating high-quality jobs in Michigan and across the country.”
