Trump Administration Imposes Tariff on Imported Solar Panels

January 2018

In response to a Section 201 trade case brought by two U.S. panel manufacturers, President Trump has approved a thirty percent tariff on imported solar panels. The tariff lasts four years. The tariff is thirty percent in the first year, and drops to twenty five percent in year two, twenty percent in year three and fifteen percent in year four. The first 2.5 gigawatts of panels imported in each year will be exempt from the tariff.
