SunPower CEO, Tom Werner talks the ITC and solar tariffs

In episode 21 of his Energy Politics Podcast Series, Yann Brandt of solarwakeup talks with Tom Werner on asking for 201 Exclusion and leading the fight since 2003.

Yann Brandt writes:

Tom Werner joined SunPower as employee number 35 and became the CEO in 2003. Since going public in 2005, Tom has led the company through the solar industry to where it is today. With 1,100 employees in the US and operations around the world.

With the 201 petition at the top of mind, I ask Tom about the exclusion SunPower is asking the ITC for and why he thinks First Solar asked for tariffs to be implemented when they were already exempt.

It’s difficult to get public company CEOs to open up but I saw a long-term vision come out from Tom as we discuss where solar goes from here and the impact it can have across the world.
