Just weeks after SEIA announced that Texas jumped to the #6 spot in state solar production rankings, more than 500 energy professionals gathered in Austin for the annual Solar Power Texas event last week. It was a power-packed two days as regulators, utilities and executives from companies across the solar and energy storage supply chain convened to talk trends and themes on a wide range of topics critical to the Texas solar and storage market.
Last week marked one year since the Trump administration implemented steep tariffs on imported solar cells and modules, ending nearly a year of turmoil and uncertainty for the solar industry and its quarter-of-a-million workers.
SEIA’s in-house trade expert John Smirnow will present a one-hour webinar focused on pending antidumping and countervailing duty proceedings, Section 201 and 301 tariffs, U.S. Customs enforcement, and potential trade-related implications of U.S. cybersecurity initiatives.
