Without China, would America still have Solar Energy Panels?

If America was to have a trade war with China, would we still have access to solar panels? The answer is yes, but probably not at first. Solar energy trade practices in China definitely affect the United States.

If America was to have a trade war with China, would we still have access to solar panels? The answer is yes, but probably not at first. Solar energy trade practices in China definitely affect the United States. Dumping products into the United States to avoid trade tariffs is the common performance China plays. They are trying to get around a thirty percent trade tariff on items manufactured in China, but they reroute them to Taiwan and back to China then to America.


Solar energy cells, panels, and frames come from many countries. The demand for these supposedly earth friendly products has recently sharply risen due to bank solar loans and rebates from the American government. The residential homeowner, marketed too heavily, is offered leasing and loan deals on the solar energy equipment.

It is a global issue, solar energy, and for China, it seems to be short cut after short cut to provide a quick and cheap product without abiding by tariff laws. The American government wants its citizens to buy solar panels, and the Chinese government wants its citizens to build the panels. Rather than celebrate this harmonious agreement they are yelling trade wars at each other. The main industry harmed in all of this, would be the environment. The jobs of installing the panels, and the other environmental jobs connected with solar energy.

China recently, over shot the market with supply of solar panels because they produced too many. The price drop from too many panels is not a problem in America. There are speculations that China intentionally drove the market by producing too many panels, thus over shooting the market. If they did it intentionally, they could corner the market on manufacturing solar panels for a low price.

TRA SNOW AND SUN - SOLAR TILE MOUNT

TRA SNOW AND SUN - SOLAR TILE MOUNT

You haven't installed a tile mount that is easier to install than the Solar Tile Mount manufactured by TRA Snow and Sun. Solar Tile Mount is used on all tile roof profiles: flat, mid, and high. It is made in the USA of aluminum alloy for strength and excellent corrosion resistance. Solar Tile Mount is built to allow more ease in installation with more rise from the tile surface to the rail for better air flow below panels. The adjustable base is longer than most allowing attachment 6" to the left or right to have the bracket in the base of the pan of the tile and still fasten to the rafter. Solar Tile Mount is adjustable for counter batten systems from ¾" to 3". The horizontal rail is directly above base fasteners giving greater uplift resistance than any other system. For superior waterproofing apply TRA Snow and Sun's butyl backed VersaFlash aluminum flashing. No tile flashing is needed on top of the tile for greater labor and material cost savings.
