“The ITC’s decision is disappointing for nearly 9,000 U.S. solar companies and the 260,000 Americans they employ. Foreign-owned companies that brought business failures on themselves are attempting to exploit American trade laws to gain a bailout for their bad investments.
Analysts say Suniva’s remedy proposal will double the price of solar, destroy two-thirds of demand, erode billions of dollars in investment and unnecessarily force 88,000 Americans to lose their jobs in 2018.”
See SEIA Statement on Anti-Solar ITC DecisionPity USA! Not only are they saddled with a dinosaur in the Oval Office, the International Trade Commission has decided international trade in solar panels is unfair. This will likely mean a huge rise in the price of solar panels greatly curtailing deployment.
Fortunately, I live in Canada and expect the price of solar panels to continue falling as USA sharply drops its demand for the product. There is a silver lining. It will be even less expensive for me to power my future Solo EV by sunshine.
