Help from local governments propping up lossmaking Chinese solar companies


The country’s state-owned electricity distributor, China State Grid Corp (國家電網), announced incentives on Oct. 26 to encourage smaller solar projects, with capacity of less than 6 megawatts, such as rooftop systems. It will buy the electricity and exempt owners from certain fees.
