Trump’s 30% solar tariffs could kill thousands of jobs and harm industry growth

Comments Off on Trump’s 30% solar tariffs could kill thousands of jobs and harm industry growth

The solar industry has been booming. In some states, solar threatens to upend fossil fuel profits , massive corporations are investing heavily and even oil giants are getting into solar . But Trump’s recent move to put 30% tariffs on solar panels could change that, killing up to 23,000 jobs and slowing down – or even stopping – the rapid industry growth. Embed from Getty Images window.gie=window.gie||function(c){(gie.q=gie.q||[]).push(c)};gie(function(){gie.widgets.load({id:’t5MIqytJS5NXEvTSm7y-rQ’,sig:’n4unO-lpiCZMlgG8YdNTqxetJabmbD4NGv7Nw-WrTtA=’,w:’514px’,h:’594px’,items:’886433502′,caption: true ,tld:’com’,is360: false })}); Yesterday, Trump announced that there would be a 30% tariff placed on all imported solar panels, and all components used to create them. While no one can say for sure what impact this will have on the industry, many experts agree that the move will make solar much less attractive to investors and could cost thousands of jobs. The economic impacts will be felt not only by panel manufacturers but across the entire chain, including installers and companies that manufacture solar supplies.

Obama placed similar tariffs on solar panels, but a loophole allowed Chinese manufacturers to move production to nearby countries. Trump’s move comes at a time when his administration has been working hard to bolster the fossil fuel industry, withdrawing from the Paris climate agreement , opening national parks to mining , and paying lip service to coal miners (without actually improving things for miners themselves ).
