Solar Tariffs Boost U.S. Solar

In this video, Motley Fool Energy Analyst Taylor Muckerman takes a look at new tariffs set in place against imports of Chinese solar panels, and what it means for the U.S. solar industry. The Chinese solar industry has been accused of "dumping," subsidizing their solar industry in order to sell solar equipment in the U.S. at below-cost prices, in order to completely negate U.S. solar companies' ability to compete. New tariffs placed against imports of Chinese solar panels by the U.S. International Trade Commission are intended to offset this, and give the U.S. solar industry a much-needed shot in the arm.

One of the most interesting and dramatic companies to watch today in U.S. solar is First Solar. Investors and bystanders alike have been shocked by the company's precipitous drop over the last 12 months, and now the stakes have never been higher for the company. Are they done for good, or ready for a rebound? If you're looking for our recommendation on how to play First Solar, along with continuing updates and guidance on the company whenever news breaks, we've created a brand new report that details every must know side of this stock.
