US Files WTO Complaint About India's Solar Energy Rules

Today’s action follows a case the U.S. filed in February 2013 at the Geneva-based WTO, saying India’s domestic-content requirements on solar energy violate global trade rules.

“These domestic content requirements discriminate against U.S. exports” of solar products, U.S. Trade Representative Michael Froman said today at a news conference in Washington.
