These new import taxes on solar panels made outside USA will give an advantage to those companies who locate here in USA. Some Chinese companies that are already making solar panels here will have an advantage now.
President Trump announced on Monday afternoon that the US will put 30% tariffs on foreign-made solar panels this year in a landmark trade decision that has sent shockwaves across the US solar industry.
The move aims to help American-based solar manufacturers losing business to the flood of cheap solar panels coming out of China and elsewhere, according to the Trump administration. Trump officials also recently announced new tariffs on imported washing machines.
