"Solar: ITC Backs U.S. Panel Makers, Sends Case To Trump"

"The U.S. International Trade Commission ruled [Friday] that imported solar panels and modules are causing 'serious injury' to U.S. manufacturers, giving President Trump the final say about tariffs in a high-profile case that could unravel the American solar industry.

In a 4-0 vote, the commission found Suniva and SolarWorld Americas were harmed from a flood of cheap solar equipment, primarily from Chinese-backed companies in Asia. Two of six commissioners were absent from the bipartisan panel.

Next comes the remedy phase, in which the ITC could recommend tariffs, price floors or some other option in November."
