On Friday 31st August, the European Commission officially confirmed that they will end the trade measures.   

The Commission announced in a statement that the trade measures will expire on Monday 3rd September.

We are delighted with this outcome which will mean a new solar dawn in Europe – with more solar deployment and jobs – as the removal of the duties will make solar more affordable for all Europeans.

Now we would like to make some noise about this fantastic result, below we have put together a communications kit which include our press release, tweets to share and some facts about the trade case – feel free to use this material  in your own communications, on your social media networks and with your members.
