Chinese solar manufacturers react favorably to Beijing's introduction of "reformed methods" to support them. The methods include easier financing, electricity subsidies, and a requirement that utilities buy all the electricity solar plants create. The government has also reiterated its call for industry consolidation. In addition to Canadian Solar (CSIQ +10% - previous), winners include LDK (LDK +8.8%), Yingli (YGE +11.8%), Daqo (DQ +17%), Trina (TSL +7.4%), and JinkoSolar (JKS +8%). Yingli just struck a deal to help develop 3GW worth of solar plants in Southern China by 2016.
