Solar panels

The Trump administration is considering tariffs on Chinese solar panels.

President Donald Trump is expected to announce a decision soon that will affect everyone from the roof repairs industry to major solar manufacturers.

At issue is whether the administration will impose tariffs on solar panel imports. The decision could have far-reaching implications on the cost of solar installation. National Public Radio reports:

Some U.S. manufacturers have complained that cheap imports are forcing them out of business, while domestic installers oppose tariffs because cheap, imported solar panels have driven the industry’s recent growth.
