Turkey sets new rules for imports of solar cell modules


The new regulations stipulate that the import tariffs of solar cell modules will now be calculated in kilograms instead of square meters in accordance with the old regulations. This may be beneficial to Turkish manufacturers, because high-efficiency battery modules are now generally heavier than they were a few years ago. According to previous regulations, as production increases and module size remains unchanged, imports of photovoltaic panels enjoy VAT reduction.

The Turkish government this week announced new regulations on the import of solar panels. These regulations will take effect within 30 days from the date of publication.
 
The new regulations stipulate that the import tariffs of solar cell modules will now be calculated in kilograms instead of square meters in accordance with the old regulations.
 
According to the old regulations that took effect from May 2017 to this month, the actual total value of imported solar modules is calculated at USD 300 per square meter. However, according to the government's new calculation method, the actual price of the component will be $ 25 / kg. The first version of this rule also uses the exchange rate per kilogram of US dollars and is effective from December 2015 to April 2017.
