U.S. polysilicon producers get relief in latest Trump trade deal

Trump’s administration has come to an agreement on the first phase of a bilateral trade agreement with China for a variety of American products, including U.S. polysilicon.

The new deal signals a rollback in the back-and-forth tariffs between the two countries. Trump had held off on raising tariffs by 25% at the start of 2020 due to current negotiations with China.

“While this trade deal won’t do anything to relax the solar tariffs, it is a positive development for the U.S. solar industry,” said John Smirnow, vice president of market strategy, at SEIA.
