The Coalition for Affordable Solar Energy (CASE) has released a statement to clarify the anti-dumping duties levied on Chinese solar manufacturers.
With regards to the figures in SolarWorld’s press release, Jigar Shah, President of CASE, said: “These numbers were wrong on October 10 and they are wrong today.”
He continued: “CASE would like to clarify the Department of Commerce’s ruling today on the AD and CVD tariffs for imported Chinese solar cells. It is clear that there is confusion around the decision, specifically around the required 10.54% reduction in the AD rate to avoid double counting of anti-subsidy tariffs.
For clarification he referred to a chart outlining the final tariff decisions against the proposed preliminary rates earlier this year (see image). “As you’ll note, all the final AD decisions have decreased significantly,” he said.
