US cautions India against cheap Chinese solar imports

Francis R Fannon, assistant secretary of state for energy resources, said that Indian solar developers should consider quality, service standards, overall costs and geopolitical implications before opting for cheap Chinese imports. Stating the benefits that American solar companies can bring, he said “When a US company enters any market, they win in a competitive way, they tend to bring the best environment health safety standards, they tend to be the best operators, the best innovation, the best engineering, and they respect the sovereignty of the countries they are operating in,” Fannon said. “These are all concepts that need to be considered.”
