With the postponement, the waiting period for the outcome of the request by SolarWorld to probe into the possible illegal nature of Chinese subsidies gets longer. The authorities are currently reviewing possible compensation measures and protection tariffs. Extension of the deadline is to facilitate a more thorough examination of the Chinese solar subsidies. With the number of solar subsidies listed in the petition, it is no wonder that the Department of Commerce requires more time.
The department began its investigations after SolarWorld and six other U.S. PV manufacturers submitted their trade petition. The petition has been criticised by the Chinese governments, Chinese PV players as well as PV companies in the U.S. as well as elsewhere.
