WASHINGTON, D.C. - Following is a statement from Abigail Ross Hopper, president and CEO of the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA), on today's decision by the International Trade Commission (ITC) regarding Suniva's Section 201 filing:


"The International Trade Commissions decision to consider Sunivas petition for a lifeline could be bad news for hundreds of thousands of American workers in the solar industry and may jeopardize billions of dollars in investment in communities across the country. Setting high price floors and exorbitant tariffs is a blunt instrument that would cripple one of the brightest spots in Americas economy.

While we respect the ITC's decision to evaluate this claim on its merits, SEIA will remain at the forefront of the opposition to Suniva's requested remedies. We encourage all members of the solar industry to assist the ITC if asked for information and to work with us to ensure your voice is heard. Our goal throughout this proceeding will remain focused on developing more equitable and sustainable ways to boost American solar manufacturing that benefit many companies instead of just a few and allows the entire solar industry to continue to grow in this country."
