    JA Solar (JASO +6.7%), China's largest solar cell maker, says it may move production out of China to evade U.S. anti-dumping tariffs, CEO Peng Fang says in comments highlighting growing tensions between European and U.S. governments and the Chinese state over its aid for renewable energy companies.

    More bad news for Chinese solar firms who have just been hit with major U.S. tariffs. European banks, many of whom have troubles of their own, have reportedly started blacklisting Asian solar module vendors seeking funds from lending facilities, as have systems integrators. Weak Euro solar demand, macro troubles, and concerns about product quality are all said to be influencing the moves.

    Yingli Green Energy (YGE) is expected to post a $32.8M Q1 net loss on Wednesday, but is hardly the only solar company hurting as Europe cuts solar subsidies and the U.S. slaps tariffs on Chinese solar products. Says one analyst: "No one is expecting solars to make money this year, so the question is which company will make it through the next year or two. There has to be consolidation."

    ReneSola (SOL +7.8%) shares surge as Q1 revenues at the Chinese maker of solar products fell at a slower-than-expected pace, thanks in part to demand from Europe, and the company said Q2 revenue would total at least $200M vs. $178M consensus. Some solar peers also move up: STP +3.1%, LDK +2.7%, TSL +2.7%, YGE +2.3%, JASO +1.5%.

    Canadian Solar (CSIQ +7.2%) has given back a chunk of the premarket gains it saw on a report CNOOC (CEO) is in talks to acquire the firm. Other Chinese solar names have given back most or all of their early gains: TSL -2.1%. YGE -2.9%. JASO +1.5%. HOKU +0.9%. Past remarks from the Chinese government have already led many to expect consolidation, and some fear a bit of M&A activity won't be enough to fix the solar industry's huge problems.

    A silver lining to the solar crisis is that the fall in panel prices should enable the sector to compete without government subsidies, writes Liam Denning in the WSJ. However, it won't necessarily be the pioneers that benefit, but companies such as GE with the "scale to compete on price and absorb the inevitable cyclical losses."

    Chinese solar stocks sink as NYT notes the impact of smaller-than-expected tariffs on the market "could be limited" but tariffs could be added in May when the Commerce Department will consider whether China is dumping solar panels in the U.S. YGE -12.5%, TSL -7.8%, STP -9.8%, JASO -6.3%. U.S. solar shares also are lower: FSLR -5.9%, SPWR -6.2%.

    Jefferies warns that the U.S. decision to set a tariff on imported solar panels shouldn't be lighting a fire under solar stocks such as JA Solar (JASO +3.8%), Yingli Green Energy (YGE +13.9%), Trina Solar (TSL +7.9%), and Suntech Power (STP +9.9%). Analysts with the firm note that a more significant ruling on anti-dumping charges is not set to be released until May 17.

    Chinese solar stocks fly off of the news that the U.S. will slap tariffs on solar panels imported from China at a lower rate than was expected. The tariffs - set at 2.9% to 4.73% - are a reaction to subsidies the U.S. government says China gave to manufacturers. Advancers: STP +7.4%, JASO +1.7%, TSL +6.2%, YGE +12.6%.
