Polaris solar PV net news: United States solar city, 2012 to start double-reverse, the Mainland had changed the component manufacturer Taiwan battery packaging components and then sold to the United States, to avoid double taxation. In 2014, however, on both sides of industry are facing the United States “the new double-reverse” investigation, while half of 2014 city assembly plant positive for the United States market stock, once Taiwan battery supply, but on June 3 the United States countervailing duty on the Mainland after the initial, pull strength weakened rapidly.
Remove United States after double shield, Taiwan battery to face the Mainland batteries low price competition, lost to plant city, plus production costs, so, in the “new double reverse” after the initial, Taiwan multi crystalline cells are quickly into killing fields, are likely to quickly fall into losses.
Therefore, the Taiwan solar cell makers have started to raise capacity from the current multi crystalline cells go to the Crystal battery, because for most Taiwan battery factory, monocrystalline cell still has money, but relatively strong in technology, management, the Mainland battery factory will take some time to catch power plant. The most important thing is, imported crystal switching costs are not high, as long as the existing production lines be adjusted, unless you want to further improve efficiency, just need to add some processing workstation.
