How Chinese panels are affecting western solar markets


There’s no doubt about it, the price of solar PV is falling and probably will continue to fall over the near future. Many within the industry identify oversupply and production overcapacity as the main factors for falling PV prices alongside cost reductions achieved by improved technological innovation.

As a result Chinese and Taiwanese solar PV companies have managed to increase production by 120 percent over the last four years, according to Asset Management Sustainability Research.
