Solar power is energy from the sun that is converted into thermal or electrical energy. The U.S. solar market is growing rapidly as the industry scales up new innovative technologies and drives down manufacturing and installation costs. There are several ways to harness solar energy: photovoltaics, solar heating & cooling, concentrating solar power, and passive solar.
While this trade deal won’t do anything to relax the solar tariffs, it is a positive development for the U.S. solar industry.
Over the last ten years, solar grew from niche technology to a dominant source of new energy that fuels our economy.
Today, dozens of solar energy supporters from across the country gathered at the headquarters of the U.S. International Trade Commission (USITC) to rally for an end to solar tariffs. Clad in yellow scarves and holding sun balloons, solar workers called on the USITC to grant relief from the harmful solar tariffs.
