Solar Imports or exports?

Solar trade case will hurt the industry

America, like many countries has successfully implemented solar and renewable energy policies across different states. Federal tax breaks in conjunction with strong performance based mechanisms have driven strong returns of commercial and residential projects alike. The equipment for these projects however, like panels and inverters, continue to be manufactured overseas, in China. Despite millions of Americans getting their electricity from

distributed solar resources, a lack of subsidies and a disappearing R&D sector has resulted in a dwindling supply of onshore manufacturers. More solar should definitely be made in America, but does it have to come at the expense of crippling an industry? Mr. Trump will be deciding this for the entire country later this year in September.
