China’s not happy about the U.S. decision to impose antidumping duties of at least 31 percent on solar panels bound for the United States. Shocker, right?
The Commerce Department announces antidumping duties of around 31 percent on China’s largest solar companies, and up to nearly 250 percent on other manufacturers.
The Commerce Department set preliminary countervailing duties ranging from 2.90 to 4.73 percent on imports of Chinese solar cells and modules/panels.
Oregon’s transit agencies and SolarWorld think outside the alternative fuel tank, putting their land to use with solar at rest stops, airports, and transit stations.
SolarWorld panels give the U.S. Navy a 1.3-megawatt photovoltaic system at its Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command complex in San Diego.
The SolarWorld GT, powered by solar cells, is attempting a circumnavigation of the planet, a record for the longest distance covered by a solar car.
Opponents say a study shows duties on Chinese PV would result in big U.S. job losses, while SolarWorld wins a “critical circumstance” ruling from the U.S.
