Chinese Solar Companies May Move Production to Dodge U.S. Tariff

Updated on

Chinese solar companies are considering shifting manufacturing to other countries to avoid paying tariffs that may result from a trade complaint.

LDK Solar Co. and JA Solar Holdings Co. said they may move some production operations if the U.S. imposes duties on solar products imported from China. Suntech Power Holdings Co., the world’s biggest solar-panel maker, said the dispute would be “extremely damaging to the entire U.S. solar industry.”
