Six solar finance firms are asking Trump to consider the broader ramifications of whether to slap steep tariffs on imported solar equipment would have on broader markets and industries. “Tariffs not only will substantially and negatively impact the U.S. solar sector and the 260,000-plus well paying manufacturer, supplier, developer and installer jobs it supports, but also seriously undermine the billion-dollar financial markets and companies, such as ours, that rely on the success of the domestic solar industry,” they wrote.
