The price of solar power has declined dramatically in recent years. That’s good news for homeowners, the environment and the economy. Renewable power now accounts for the lion’s share of new electrical generation around the world. But earlier this year, the United States slapped a thirty percent tariff on imported solar panels – a move that could cost thousands of American jobs and billions of dollars in future solar investments. Will this move put the brakes on what looked like a promising trend towards greener energy?
