As one of the largest U.S. suppliers of wind towers, Broadwind is pleased with the ITC's finding that the U.S. wind industry has been materially impacted by Chinese and Vietnamese imports sold at less than fair value.

CICERO, Ill.--Broadwind Energy, Inc. (NASDAQ: BWEN) made the following statement with respect to the U.S. International Trade Commission's (ITC) determinations regarding its final phase anti-dumping and countervailing duty investigations concerning utility scale wind towers from China and Vietnam.


Peter C. Duprey, president and CEO of Broadwind Energy, Inc., stated, "As one of the largest U.S. suppliers of wind towers, Broadwind is pleased with the ITC's finding that the U.S. wind industry has been materially impacted by Chinese and Vietnamese imports sold at less than fair value. With supply and demand for wind towers in the U.S. coming into better balance, the imposition of final anti-dumping and/or countervailing duty orders on these products will support fair competition and further development in wind, and the retention of jobs in the sector.

RBI Solar - Dahlia Has You Covered

What if you could maximize the Ground Coverage Ratio (GCR) on your next project and not have to worry about the complicated variables that come with a tracker system? With a low tilt and clearance design, Dahlia® has the highest GCR of any fixed-tilt system in the marketplace. The system is available in three tilt options (7.5, 10 and 12.5 degrees) and designed to accommodate any sized PV module. The lightweight system is engineered with fewer components, several of which are shipped to job sites pre-assembled. This design feature reduces freight costs and rapidly trims the amount of on-site installation time required to complete construction. Maximizing PV coverage on a site can lead to an increase of production, which creates greater financial return for project owners. Over 100 MW of Dahlia® projects have been deployed across the United States, in regions of variable snow and wind loads. How much can Dahlia® cover and save you on your next project?
