Senator Baldwin, Colleagues Introduce Legislation to Bolster Made in America Solar Manufacturing
WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Tammy Baldwin introduced the Reclaiming the Solar Supply Chain Act to expand the solar manufacturing supply chain in the U.S., create good paying jobs, and support our country’s transition to cheaper renewable energy.
“Investing in Made in America solar manufacturing will ensure our supply chains are housed here in the U.S. and help us move toward a renewable energy future, all while creating good paying jobs,” said Senator Baldwin. “I am proud to support this legislation that will create and sustain American manufacturing jobs and help provide low cost clean energy for American families.”
The legislation is also sponsored by Senators Catherine Cortez Masto (D-NV), Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), and Sherrod Brown (D-OH).
This legislation is endorsed by The Ultra Low-Carbon Solar Alliance, Environmental Defense Fund (EDF), Sierra Club, Securing America’s Future Energy (SAFE) Center for Critical Minerals Strategy, and American Council on Renewable Energy (ACORE).

One thought on “Senator Baldwin, Colleagues Introduce Legislation to Bolster Made in America Solar Manufacturing”
America’s solar companies and workers are up against the wall right now. A special interest group backed by several Chinese companies with millions of dollars is working overtime to undermine both American made solar and the U.S. trade enforcement system. Investigations by the Commerce Dept. are being campaigned against by solar importers who don’t want to lose access to these subsidized importers which could be using forced labor for example.
If the U.S. refuses to enforce its trade laws it will make us even more reliant on China. It also will make us far less energy independent.
Senator Baldwin’s bill is critical to U.S. solar panel sustainability considering the foreign competition.
