India Vows to Buy Local as Solar Dumping Deadline Passes

India’s power minister asked domestic solar equipment makers to start idled capacities, pledging the government would ensure buyers for their products.

The assurance came as India failed to publicly announce dumping duties by an Aug. 22 deadline on competing U.S. and Asian imports. The levies threatened to stall projects in the region’s third-biggest solar market and escalate a protectionist trade war already under way between the U.S., Europe and China.
