PVinsights: The demand weakness escalates

Both of multi-crystalline and mono-crystalline module prices decrease this week, due to the slowdown of global demand and the price competition lead by Chinese module makers. Some major markets, such as China, Europe, and Japan, are to step into the traditional slow season in March, therefore, solar panel prices are under pressure following the demand weakening. Moreover, the price competition which leads by Chinese module makers also pressurizes solar panel prices. As leveraging their capacities outside China, some Chinese module makers can import their products into the U.S. and Europe without paying the punitive tariff, and using the price competition to gain more market shares in these regions.

Warren Buffett Downplays His Battle With Elon Musk in Nevada Over Solar Power

Joe Carmichael for Inverse:  Buffett, in an interview with CNBC on Monday, responded to viewer questions about this clash (a clash that Bloomberg Business intensified with a cover story): two viewers asked why Buffett’s companies are preventing and deterring net metering in Nevada. Buffett responded: “We don’t have a problem with net meters, and we’re the leading in renewables in the country among regulated utilities. The [unintelligible] we do not want our million-plus customers that do not have solar to be buying solar at 10 and a half cents when we can turn it out for them at 4 and a half cents or buy it at 4 and a half cents. So, we do not want the non-solar customers, of whom there are over a million, to be subsidizing the 17,000 solar customers. Now, solar customers are subsidized through the Federal Government — as we are, with our wind and solar operations ourselves. … “In Nevada, [Musk's company, SolarCity] had an arrangement for a very limited number of people — and the public utility commission decides this — they had an arrangement where the utility had to pay way above market for solar produced by these 17,000 homes, and that —“ The interviewer interrupted to clarify: “For instance, if I have solar electricity that I’m producing, that’s more than I need, I can sell it back to you…”   Cont'd...
