Press Release

Following is a statement from Abigail Ross Hopper, president & CEO of the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA), in response to Peter Navarro's attack on SEIA's solar tariff impact study:

“We were heartened to hear the president share his concern about climate change, and I think we agree that greater use of solar energy and a strong solar manufacturing presence is one way to meet our collective goals of continuing American economic growth and meaningfully addressing climate change. We’d be thrilled if Mr. Navarro would come to one of our conferences to meet some of the 242,000 Americans who work in this great industry, including the tens of thousands of people who manufacture solar products. We look forward to working with the Trump administration on ways to advance real manufacturing growth without these particularly counterproductive tariffs.”
