The future of solar is STILL bright - Image 1


Last week many solar companies, like us at Carolina Energy Conservation, received some potentially sobering news....President Trump followed through with a 30% tariff on imported solar cells and panels. After hearing the news, we've received an influx of questions from past, present, and future solar customers...."How will this affect me?" was among the most popular. While we cannot say for sure what will happen, we remain optimistic about the future of solar energy. Here's why....


  • We believe the tariff was less severe than it could have been and only affects the import of panels, which accounts for only a part of residential installation costs. 







Overall, we expect our suppliers to continue to adjust to the anti-dumping measures imposed on Chinese solar products, which started back in 2012. While there may be some increase in pricing, it should not materially affect our customers’ savings. Carolina Energy Conservation is dedicated to minimizing any economic impact of this tariff on our customers. We are still optimistic about the future of the solar industry and believe you should be too!

If you're considering solar, and are worried about the tariff, be sure to GO SOLAR NOW and lock in current pricing before the tariff takes effect.
