PHOENIX -- An Arizona solar-power manufacturing plant is shutting down.

Suntech Power Holdings is ending production at its Goodyear plant April 3, affecting 43 employees.

Suntech had gotten a two-month reprieve Monday on its $541 million bond due at the end of the week.

The company blames American tariffs on aluminum framing for its money crisis.
