Fake solar panels worth $1.4m seized in New Mexico

US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers working at the Santa Teresa port of entry in New Mexico have intercepted a shipment of counterfeit solar panels with an estimated retail value of $1.4m.

On July 4, the officers conducted an operation focused on solar products and intellectual property rights (IPR) infringement. During the operation, CBP officers targeted a shipment of more than 9,000 crystal silicone photocell modules shipped from Vietnam for possible IPR violations and withheld the cargo for investigation.

The shipment was carefully examined and the goods were declared counterfeit by the rightful trademark owner on July 15.
