A new tariff on imported solar modules would nearly double the current rate of foreign-made products that enter the United States. This potential sudden increase worries many across the industry that the hike could jolt consumers with higher prices.
In addition, the Solar Energy Industries Association has come out against the proposed hike because it has the potential of crippling the market. Industry leaders say the increase could damage and tarnish this promising $29 billion segment of the economy.
Some key dates to remember:
- Dec. 6: Public hearing.
- Jan. 12: Deadline for President Trump to decide on the hike.
