World Trade Organization Draws The Shade On Local Solar Projects In India

Sierra Club

GENEVA - Today, the World Trade Organization (WTO) ruled against India’s appeal to its February 2016 decision against buy-local policies in India’s ambitious solar energy initiative. The successful initiative, which at its base offers solar power companies government subsidies and long-term contracts, has already fostered the development of more than 8,000 megawatts of solar power in India. The initial complaint to the WTO was filed by the United States in 2014.
