China's Ministry of Commerce is considering including solar
products such solar panels and solar water heaters in its home
appliance subsidy scheme for rural buyers in hopes to boost
domestic consumption of solar companies and the green industry as
a whole.Currently farmers are allegeable to receive subsidies
equal to 13% of the price of designated types of electrical home
appliances in the plan.
The shift in sentiment should benefit the China's solar
industry, a sector that has been doing well in recent years
driven by various governments' efforts to promote alternative
energy. However, many of China's solar companies have
suffered on Wall Street, given slow growth in the industry
globally, overcapacity and shrinking foreign demand.
The Ministry of Commerce is considering more policies to
stimulate domestic consumption and some "fiscal incentives" could
be given to drive the sale of household solar products, MOC
spokesman Shen Danyang told a press conference Wednesday.
