A move in Washington Monday afternoon that Vermont solar companies feared: President Trump approved tariffs on imported solar panels and washing machines.

Critics fear the move could dampen the U.S. solar industry. Solar experts here say the higher cost for those foreign components could price out Vermonters hoping to switch to renewables and that could potentially lead to job losses.
