The news was enough to bring a sigh of relief to major Chinese suppliers such as Trina Solar and JinkoSolar. After a long delay, their products were finally able to enter the US market smoothly.
This news also means that a large number of Chinese solar panels that were previously stuck at the US customs border or waiting to be transported from overseas have been able to successfully clear customs in the US, which is expected to help alleviate the plight of solar project development in the US.
