This episode of EnergyWakeup, the podcast produced by SolarWakeup, Yann speaks with Costa Nicolaou from PanelClaw. The discussion centers around the 201 tariff process and a behind the scenes look at how industry leaders participated in the fight against the solar tax. As a racking company that actually creates the steel and aluminum manufacturing jobs that Trump is looking for, Costa found common ground around the racking industry. With the help of SEIA, the racking companies submitted multiple letters to the USITC to advocate against the 201 tariffs. The racking industry sees itself at the bad end of both the solar tariff and the steel trade case. There are well over 30,000 jobs in this space that are trying hard to grow and Costa is a leader in that space. This podcast gives you some views into the work that policy fights require.
