US Again Imposes Clean-Energy Tariffs On China
From Manufacturing News
The Obama administration moved Wednesday to impose stiff new tariffs on wind-energy towers made in China, the latest strike in an escalating trade war over clean energy.
The Commerce Department said in a preliminary decision that Chinese companies have received government subsidies on steel wind towers ranging from about 14 percent to 26 percent. The decision could result in tariffsof those amounts being imposed on about a dozen Chinese companies that export large steel towers used in U.S. wind farms.
