A court is set to hear a closely watched case in which a prominent environmental group is suing a power-grid company for refusing to purchase electricity generated at wind and solar farms and thereby violating a clean energy law.

The court in Ningxia, in China’s northwest, summoned attorneys for Friends of Nature, a Beijing-based nongovernmental organization (NGO), and the regional subsidiary of the State Grid Corp. for talks on Tuesday.
