A solar trade war between the EU and China looks inevitable. EU customs officials will start registering Chinese module imports tomorrow, a move that could pave the way for tariffs. The EC has until June 6 to impose provisional tariffs; EU member states have until Dec. 5 to vote on definitive tariffs. The Chinese government appears on its way to imposing tariffs on polysilicon imports from the EU, U.S., and South Korea. Suntech (STP -4.3%) is lower, but other Chinese solar names are following the market higher. YGE +5.8%. JKS +6.6%. TSL +5.6%. SOL +5.3%.
