Press Teleconference -  With a vote on the solar investment tax credit (ITC) expected in the U.S. Senate in the coming weeks, financial experts from prominent investment banks, commercial banks, and venture capitalist firms will discuss the importance of federal tax credits for residential, commercial and utility-scale solar energy projects. Teleconference speakers will highlight investment opportunities and job creation associated with a long-term extension of the ITC, which is set to expire at the end of this year. They will also discuss the market effects of a lapsed ITC.
