Tell Congress to Support Solar Jobs and Oppose Increased Tariffs

Nov 10, 2017

The United States is a global leader in clean energy. Last year, solar energy was the #1 source of new electricity in America and is poised for another strong year in 2017. There is now enough solar electricity in this great country to power 6.5 million homes and we are powering some of America's leading businesses including Target, Walmart, Apple and General Motors. All this activity translates to real opportunities for NECA contractors.

But there is an imminent threat to the solar industry and to those across America who create economic growth using free and fair trade. A petition filed with the International Trade Commission (ITC) could double the price of solar panels and stop solar growth dead in its tracks.

We need your support. Get engaged and write your Member of Congress urging them to support disapproval of the petition to increase the cost of solar panels and save America's solar jobs!
