Solar Industry

Solar Industry Benefits

Solar Power is clean energy. By taxing emissions, solar panels and power systems will not be taxed directly and become more competitive to traditional fossil fuels for energy.

By making the marketplace fair in consideration for the environment, the solar industry will see an increase in demand, further pushing solar and other renewable energy technologies forward and lowering their price.

There are emissions in the manufacture of solar panels (source), and would be taxed as well, initially raising the cost of solar panel manufacturing slightly as most of the emissions generated are captured already.

The Solar Industry would compete to reduce waste so they can offer lower prices or have more profits.
