George Hershman, CEO of SOLV Energy, the nation’s largest utility-scale solar provider issued the following statement in response to the U.S. House of Representatives’ vote to overturn President Biden’s two-year reprieve of new solar tariffs.
“This resolution could put companies on the hook to pay more than a billion dollars in retroactive tariffs and jeopardize tens of thousands of jobs across the country. President Biden’s pause on new solar tariffs provided a much-needed bridge for companies to deploy clean energy and keep American workers on the payroll as the U.S. builds out a dramatic ramp-up in our domestic solar manufacturing sector.
“The U.S. has made significant progress in growing the clean
energy economy since the passage of the Inflation Reduction Act, but the political attempts to
undermine the President’s agenda threaten to undercut America’s strength in
solar deployment. I urge members of the Senate to vote against this harmful
resolution. We must continue to protect our ability to create good-paying clean
energy jobs, help grow the number of skilled American workers, and increase
American energy independence.”
