The United States based makers challenge state-subsidised Chinese solar firms, which they said that they are "inundating the United States market with solar cells as well as panels at dumped costs to systematically protected a higher market share". This action next to inequitable trade practices could be one of the major against China in the US, and is supposed to be the primary in the field of renewable energy internationally.
CEO and Chairman of SolarWorld AG, Dr.-Ing. E.h. Frank Asbeck says: "Our US and German factories are completely competitive globally – however China's unfair business practices must be addressed." Along with a huge number of preferential treatments and subsidies, the Chinese Government and its state influences which have enabled its solar business to make cost cuts well beyond their individual efficiency as well as to massively enlarge the export of its goods, said by SolarWorld.
Familiar cases of infringements of quality, social and environmental standards which regulate production sites in the Germany and US have also been exposed, according to the appeal. President of the United States subsidiary Solar World Industries of America Inc, Gordon Brinser, further added: "China has no expenditure benefits which are not even through very small salaries. In the case of high-tech products such as solar cells and solar power modules, the share of labor expenses is very low down."
"The Chinese industry's capability to provide dumping prices is exclusively attributable to huge financial support by the Chinese Government and Chinese State Banks." "Worldwide trade in solar products has been good for the US by increasing export chances for creating jobs, local manufacturers and driving down expenses to customers."
