Trina Solar has also denied any wrongdoing over a spat with other PV manufacturers, headed by SolarWorld that have claimed a number of China-based producers over unfair practices, including pricing. Trina noted that the subsequent proceedings would reveal the allegations “unfounded.” Suntech Power and Yingli Green have already denied any unfair practices in official statements.
Trina said in a statement that; ‘Trina Solar believes the allegations made by the U.S. petitioners will eventually prove to be unfounded and that Trina Solar's transactions with its United States customers were made in accordance with international trade practices. The company has and will continue to adhere to prudent and recognized United States industry practices and standards. Trina Solar is confident that these facts will be affirmed within the proceedings.’
Several other PV manufacturers from China have already made official responses to the petition to the US International Trade Commission (ITC) and the Department of Commerce (DOC) by the newly formed The Coalition for American Solar Manufacturing, which has 8 members, including the US operations of SolarWorld.
