Trade Case Threatens Thousands of Solar Jobs 

Trade Case Threatens Thousands of Solar Jobs 

 

A solar trade case pending before the International Trade Commission poses significant risks to the entire U.S. solar industry, believes the Solar Energy Industries Association. A petition was filed by Suniva, a Chinese-owned solar company that has filed for bankruptcy,and supported by SolarWorld, a German-owned solar company. They  are requesting that the federal government impose tariffs on imported solar cells and establish minimum prices on imported solar panels.

SEIA estimates that if they prevail, solar panel prices will double and up to 88,000 solar jobs nationally – and about 2,000 in Colorado—will be lost.

COSEIA is asking member companies to let us know if you want to sign on to a letter that will be sent to members of our Congressional delegation. Please email Rebecca at *protected email* if your company wants to sign on.

There is also a model letter here you can use to send your own letter.

Companies are also asked to fill out a questionnaire on the case. You can find information here:
