Biden extends Trump solar panel tariffs but excludes bifacial panels as part of clean energy push

President Biden extended Trump imposed tariffs on most solar panels imported from China and other countries — but exempted “bifacial” solar panels.

“By excluding bifacial panels, we will ensure that solar deployment continues at the pace and scale needed,” Biden said in a statement.

Biden also doubled an import quota on solar cells to 5 gigawatts, allowing a greater number of imported cells used by domestic manufacturers.

A Whitehouse official said that the cells come from places like Vietnam or Malaysia — not China.
