First Solar (FSLR) +1.8% after announcing a deal to supply 2MW of modules for a "demonstration project" in China's Xinjiang province. 2MW isn't much for a supplier of First Solar's size, but it could pave the way for bigger deals in a giant market that's dominated by local vendors, and which receives large and growing government subsidies.

    I like your comment because it seems that you actually believe that.
    This sounds like politics. I wouldn't keep my
    hopes up for FSLR to landing a big deal in china, unless the governments make a deal in order to stop the tarrif business.

    Exactly - you don't think they won't retaliate with tariffs of their own?
    Or copy FSLR and then flood the market with cheaper prices.
