PORTLAND, Tenn., June 07, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Shoals Technologies Group, Inc. (“Shoals” or “the Company”) (Nasdaq: SHLS), a leading provider of electrical balance of systems (EBOS) solutions for solar, storage, and electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure, today issued the following statement from Jason Whitaker, President & Chief Executive Officer, applauding President Biden’s Executive Action to spur U.S. solar manufacturing and decision to declare a 24-month tariff exemption for imported solar panels.

“As the leading manufacturer of electrical balance of systems components (“EBOS”) in the United States for the solar industry, we applaud President Biden’s Executive Action invoking the Defense Production Act to spur domestic manufacturing, strengthen our power grids, and accelerate job creation while also granting a 24-month tariff exemption bridge.

Our partners rely upon the steady flow of solar panels and components to address the Administration’s climate change goals. This Executive Action provides near-term certainty for them to proceed forward, which will lead to tens of thousands of good-paying American jobs in construction and the US clean energy manufacturing field.

With over half of the solar projects in the United States utilizing our solutions, our clients depend upon Shoals to provide mission critical products that collect energy produced by solar panels in order to supply it to the electrical grid. While there is much left to do to boost the industry’s broader domestic manufacturing capabilities, yesterday’s decision will enable us to continue adding manufacturing jobs at our facilities in Tennessee, Alabama, and California to support the tremendous future of clean energy manufacturing in the United States.”
