Local Content Provisions

Local content provisions are used to boost domestic manufacturing and jobs by requiring that a certain percentage of local goods and services are used in renewable energy projects to be eligible for government support.

Local content provisions are generally considered trade-distorting measures and are prohibited under the rules of the WTO.  Local content provisions inhibit the free flow of solar products and disadvantage foreign producers who wish to benefit from government programs by effectively blocking out their imports.
