Shanghai-based JinkoSolar, the world’s second-largest solar panel manufacturer, announced it will open its first U.S. factory, days after President Donald Trump said he would raise tariffs on solar panel imports.

The announcement — made briefly at the end of a statement about a supply agreement with a U.S. buyer — said that its board of directors had authorized the company to make final plans for “an advanced solar manufacturing facility in the U.S.”
