"In October, the U.S International Trade Commission recommended levying tariffs on solar cells and panels of up to 35%. The president has full authority to follow that recommendation, opt for his own remedies or not to act at all. Industry executives warn that a high tariff would injure American competitiveness in renewable energy, one of the largest job-producing industrial sectors of the 21st century."
It encompasses more than that, the ITC has suggested, tariffs on cells and panels, but also limits to "foreign" made cells and panels. It has also been suggested that solar PV panels have a "floor" of no less than 74 cents per watt. If that happens, then China can do what automotive manufacturers did 40 years ago, build solar PV cell and panel manufacturing plants in the U.S.. Then they can call their product out as "Made in the U.S.A.". China will be in a position of "making" their American panels and selling them here. Turn around and sell panels made in China and other Asian countries for less to the rest of the World. Subsidizing Chinese World panel sales in not what this B.S. determination should entail.
