Recently, the US International Trade Commission voted to allow the President to impose tariffs on foreign-made solar panels.
Our Solarize campaigns make getting solar more affordable by partnering with local solar installers who offer competitive pricing. Most solar installers "rely on foreign imports [of solar panels] to keep prices competitive with other forms of electricity." Currently, over 90% of solar panel installations are imported.
However, new tariffs on these solar panels could drive up prices for the consumer and could cause a drop in the number of people installing solar. We are watching these developments carefully but caution consumers that prices could increase if these new tariffs are imposed.
