Foreign Solar Panels Price Increase - Higher Duties

I received the following EMail from Solar blvd .. Good thing I got mine a couple of weeks ago !!



Dear Friends,
On Tuesday, June 3rd 2014, The United States Department of Commerce successfully imposed increased duties of approximately 21.89 percent to importers of solar panels, asserting that foreign manufacturers had benefited from unfair subsidies.

The decision, in a long-simmering trade dispute, addresses one of the main charges in a petition brought by the manufacturer SolarWorld Industries America. While it is preliminary, the ruling means that the United States will begin collecting the tariffs in advance of the final decision, expected later this year.

What does this mean to you as a customer? Since you are not the importer on file, you will not be directly taxed for your solar panels. There will, however, be an increase of about 15 percent across the board on all solar modules in the next coming months.

Our goal at Solarblvd is to remain competitive. So, we will continue to offer you great pricing and unprecedented service in the coming years!

Thank you for your continued support.

Solarblvd

So THAT'S how we make trade fair!! By raising prices by 15% for the end user...brilliant.

That's how a senator who "earns" $150k per year has a net worth in the millions.

The government did the same thing years ago to protect an American company. (Harley Davidson) It raised the price on ALL motorcycles over 700cc. Can anyone guess what happened to Harley prices when they got protection?
