    Trina Will Avoid the Duties with Non-Chinese sourced panels

    From Trina Solar's March 20, 2012 Press release, :
    The DOC further preliminarily ruled that the scope of the case covered exports to the United States of Chinese made solar cells, as well as modules manufactured outside of China from solar cells produced in China. The DOC clarified that the scope does not cover the exportation of modules manufactured in China from solar cells produced in a third country. Trina Solar continues to take necessary steps in these administrative proceedings while abiding by its contractual commitments.

    In a February press release they stated that they had “made in Europe” certifications for their panels for Italy’s FIT requirements.

    I have also seen discussion about other ways to sell into the US without import duties in the case of a bad DOC decision. It is my belief that Trina intends to be able to avoid these tariffs / duties by selling into the US from non-China sourced products. JMHO
