SolarWorld Americas wants limit on solar module imports to US

September 29, 2017

SolarWorld Americas has highlighted its remedial policies to the US ITC Section 201 case that include not only a minimum import price (MIP) but a total import limit of solar cells and modules at levels around half the demand in the US in 2017.

SolarWorld Americas agreed with Suniva on MIP levels of US$0.25 per watt on imported solar cells and US$0.32 per watt on modules starting in 2018 and running for four years.
