China Solar Makers Say U.S. Petition Will Hurt Consumers

November 29, 2011

Nov. 29 (Bloomberg) -- A group of Chinese solar makers said a U.S. petition to impose duties on imports from China would hurt consumers.

A statement from the solar makers today said the U.S. solar industry benefits from Chinese solar exports and said a probe by the U.S. Department of Commerce will hurt the environment.

The U.S. unit of Bonn-based SolarWorld AG and six other companies asked the Obama administration to impose duties on Chinese imports they say are being dumped with low-cost credit from state-run banks. A U.S. International Trade Commission panel will vote on whether there’s a case to continue with a probe on Dec. 2.
