    “Rhone Resch, president and CEO of SEIA, initially told the Washington Post that group intended to remain a part of ALEC, in spite of a difference of opinion over RPS' costs and benefits…Many solar sector executives questioned SEIA's membership in ALEC, especially given its newly expanded pushback against a critical component of pro-solar policy.
