SAN DIEGO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/10/14 -- Swinerton Renewable Energy has released the following statement in response to the Department of Commerce preliminary determination in the countervailing duty (CVD) investigation of imports of certain crystalline silicon photovoltaic products from the People's Republic of China (China):
"We are deeply disappointed in the June 3rd preliminary determination ruling on countervailing duties by the Department of Commerce. As a 126 year old company, we see a bright future for renewable and solar energy. Yesterday's ruling is a major setback for the entire U.S. solar industry, one of fastest-growing sectors of the U.S. economy. The real losers in this tariff battle are the hard working construction workers that make up most of the solar industry jobs."
"Yesterday's announcement is just the first determination in a lengthy legal process. But, now more than ever, we need the parties to come together to reach a negotiated solution based on the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) proposal. We call on the Obama Administration to help by convening the parties for true negotiations."
