Utah Clean Energy statement on Biden decision in Auxin solar tariff investigation

We welcome today’s decision by the Biden administration to create a two-year safe harbor from potential tariffs on solar modules manufactured in Cambodia, Malaysia, Thailand, and Vietnam. The tariff investigation has delayed at least 5 major solar projects under contract in Utah. Today’s decision will help put those projects back on track, providing clean domestic solar electricity to Utah customers, and jobs to our state. We look forward to working with members of Utah’s Congressional delegation and the Biden administration to ramp up domestic production of solar PV modules and domestic supply chains that are critical to a clean energy economy.
