Brown, Portman: Let Ohio solar firms compete globally
U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown, D-Ohio, and U.S. Sen. Rob Portman, R-Ohio, urged the Obama administration to protect the ability for Ohio solar companies to compete in the international energy market.
Specifically, India levied anti-dumping duties on American solar-energy products after a disputed analysis for the Indian government that may have violated global trade rules.
This would put Ohio companies such as Toledo-based First Solar at a competitive disadvantage.
Brown and Portman called on the Office of the United States Trade Representative to challenge India’s AD investigation and subsequent ruling.
