- Excerpt from Commerce Issues Preliminary Determination Finding Chinese Solar Producers Receive Countervailable Subsidies:

The Department of Commerce (Commerce) preliminarily determined on June 3 that the Chinese government subsidizes the production and export of crystalline silicon photovoltaic solar cells (solar cells), as well as modules, laminates, and/or panels consisting of solar cells, with subsidy rates ranging from 18.56 percent to 35.21 percent. Commerce initiated the investigation in January 2014 following a petition filed by SolarWorld Industries America, Inc. In the petition, SolarWorld sought to close a loophole that allowed some Chinese solar producers to avoid duties imposed as a result of SolarWorld's successful 2012 antidumping and countervailing duty cases on solar cells exported from China.
