Governors: U.S. Anti-Solar Tariff Decision Could Eliminate 88,000 American Jobs

Denver Post:

U.S. trade panel on Friday found solar panel imports are hurting domestic businesses that operate in the industry, a decision that could lead to tariffs on the clean-energy parts that one group says could cost Colorado 2,000 jobs annually.

The International Trade Commission said it has determined that the imports are coming into the U.S. “in such increased quantities as to be a substantial cause of serious injury, or threat of serious injury, to the domestic industry.”

The panel will now determine how to remedy the issue — potentially through tariffs that would go before President Donald Trump for approval.
