U.S. excludes new panel technology from solar tariffs

U.S. trade officials on Wednesday said bifacial solar panels, a new technology through which power is produced on both sides of a cell, would be excluded from the Trump administration’s tariffs on overseas-made solar products.

The announcement was made in a U.S. Trade Representative document posted online and is scheduled to be published in the Federal Register on Thursday, it said.

It is the second time U.S. trade officials have announced exemptions to the tariffs, which were imposed in early 2018. The tariff on solar panel imports was set at 30% but has since dropped to 25%.
