President Trump Implements New Solar Panel Tariff

President Trump Does not like solar energy

President Donald Trump shocked the industry on Monday after his administration decided to impose tariffs on up to 30 percent of imported solar panels. The move came as an attempt to help the American solar panel industry by supporting domestic manufacturers.

Reactions to the announcement vary from complete despair for the solar industry to those who think the news won’t affect solar manufacturers very much, if at all.
