Sunnova is disappointed by the decision handed down today by the International Trade Commission (ITC) regarding Suniva and SolarWorld’s trade petition filed early this year seeking relief and trade tariffs from what they claimed to be unfair competition from overseas companies who were flooding the U.S. market with inexpensive solar panels. Speaking on the decision, Sunnova’s Chief Executive Officer, John Berger, released the following statement:
“It is disappointing that two uniquely mismanaged and uncompetitive foreign-owned companies have been able to benefit from a process meant to protect U.S. businesses that have truly been harmed by subsidized foreign competition,” said Sunnova’s Chief Executive Officer John Berger.
“We look forward to working with the Trump Administration to ensure the remedies considered do not harm our robust, rapidly expanding solar industry, which employs over 260,000 Americans. Tariffs, subsidies, and other market distorting remedies and policies harm both taxpayers and consumers who would benefit from open markets and robust competition.”
“Sunnova supports a level playing field where American companies can openly compete in free markets and will continue to offer choices to consumers everywhere.”
