Driving down the road, I saw a sign along the road by a land owner, "Made in the USA". Is it really??? Yes, the sun may be generated in the USA, BUT, what did it take to get them here?
First, you need the rare minerals? Nearly all--75-100%—of rare earth elements needed for production of solar panels are imported. As of 2020 China is the largest miner of rare earth minerals. Source
China produces 80% of the solar panels. Over the past decade, China has grown to dominate the global solar panel manufacturing industry. Source
Does this sound like "Made in the USA"?
