CCSA Statement on President Trump’s order for solar tariffs:

January 22nd, 2018

 

“We’re disappointed with the Trump Administration’s decision to impose tariffs on the solar industry, one of the fastest growing sectors of our economy. However, today’s announcement does nothing to slow the momentum or dampen the excitement for community solar,” said CCSA Executive Director Jeff Cramer. “More and more states are turning to community solar due to its proximity to customers, innovation in product designs, and strong customer demand. We expect these advantages, combined with strong-state level support for projects, will result in community solar being able to weather these tariffs and remain a bright spot in the U.S. solar market. Ultimately, the demand for clean, local and affordable energy puts the community solar industry in position to continue to invest, create new jobs, and serve millions of customers across the country who have been waiting for their opportunity to choose solar.”
