3@3 on Solar PV: Steel Tariffs, Manufacturing and Why You Should Participate in Conferences

Jenn Runyon, Chief Editor of Renewable Energy World and Paula Mints, Chief Market Research Analyst with SPV Market Research discuss three hot topics in the global solar industry for three minutes each. 

Today’s topics include U.S. President Trump’s official proclamation that he is imposing 25 percent tariffs on steel and 10 percent tariffs on aluminum and how they will affect all facets of the energy industry, including solar companies. We also touch on the now-becoming-more official JinkoSolar manufacturing plant. While there is still no official announcement that JinkoSolar is building something that will manufacture solar modules in the U.S., JinkoSolar is named in legislation recently filed in the state of Florida that seeks approval for city and state tax incentives. Lastly, we’ll touch on POWER-GEN 2018 and why you should get involved right now.
