SAN JOSE, Calif. (KGO) -- Solar panel companies are excited about a decision they say is good for business.
U.S. Commerce officials decided Tuesday to impose a 4.7 percent tariff on solar panels imported from China as part of an ongoing dispute over illegal subsidies and dumping. That news dominated a major solar trade show underway in San Jose. There were lots of smiles at the PV America Solar Trade Show because of that tariff decision, but there is always concern that any sanctions against China could trigger a possible trade war.
