The landmark US Senate climate deal announced late Wednesday would boost cleantech manufacturing, a sector that’s struggled to compete with China.

If ultimately approved by Congress, the deal would introduce a tax credit over several years for solar-panel making, batteries, wind-power components and other domestically made goods. Companies poised to benefit include First Solar Inc., the biggest US panel maker, as well as TPI Composites Inc., a maker of wind-turbine blades.
