The U.S., in an October 4 communication to World Trade Organization members, declined to comment on a question asked by India on how two Austin, TX solar energy programs and Michigan’s Clean, Renewable, and Efficient Energy Act of 2008 comply with the World Trade Organization Agreement on Trade-Related Investment Measures. The communication explained how the Michigan program and the Residential Solar PV Rebate Program in Austin work, but did not address concerns raised by India on Article 2 compliance. The U.S. said Austin’s second program, the Commercial Solar Photovoltaic Performance-Based Incentive Program, has removed a qualifications requirement on equipment manufactured or assembled in the service area.
