India May Decide on Solar Dumping Case Next Week: SIPPA

India may decide next week whether to impose duties on imports of solar equipment, according to the country’s Solar Independent Power Producers Association lobby.

A deadline for submissions to a government study on imports was extended to today, said Jagdish Agarwal, secretary of the group representing project developers opposed to tariffs that would raise building costs. The original deadline was July 25.

J.S. Deepak, the Commerce Ministry official overseeing the case, didn’t respond to a call and e-mail seeking confirmation.

Indosolar Ltd. (ISLR), Jupiter Solar Power Ltd. and Websol Energy System Ltd., Indian producers of photovoltaic cells and modules, pushed for the government investigation after saying foreign competitors from the U.S., China, Taiwan and Malaysia had sold products at below cost in India. Last month, they petitioned to expand the probe to imports from the European Union and Japan.
