Commerce Department imposes new tariffs on Chinese solar panels
Mar 20th, 2012 at 5:35pm
 
March 20, 2012 WASHINGTON � The Commerce Department is imposing new import fees on solar panels made in China, finding that the Chinese government is improperly giving subsidies to manufacturers of the panels there.

The Commerce Department said Tuesday it has found on a preliminary basis that Chinese solar panel makers have received government subsidies of 2.9 percent to 4.73 percent. Therefore, the department said, tariffs in the same proportions will be charged on Chinese panels imported into the U.S., depending on which company makes them.

"The tariff amounts are considered small"

"Fortunately, this decision will not significantly raise solar prices in the United States."
