but the sales market in USAWhat knowledge, specifically?
Lack of manufacturing infrastructure is a problem. Lack of passed-down knowledge is not. Don't understimate how quickly we can figure things out when our backs are up against a wall.
I totally agree that we should be making solar panels here in the states, but this isn't an offshoring problem. The panels were never made in the states to begin with. Current solar panel tech wasn't developed here and offshored. It was developed in China, by people from all countries. That's a problem. It's actually worse than offshoring.
the clever USA engineer spend some time will develop the next generation
the question is than the cost will be higher made in USA than China
