I thought it was interesting that the media latched on to the idea that the recent tariff would have a destructive effect on the solar industry in the US. For that to be true, the term "solar industry" must have shifted meaning overnight from companies such as First Solar that produce panels, to companies such as Tesla that install them. While there may be more jobs on the service side, do we really want to live in a country where we simply install technologies made elsewhere? I rather think it is our technology, our high paying jobs, and our domestic manufacturing that should be protected, if indeed there should be protections at all. Thoughts?
