    Cheap China Solar Still Pushing Global Market

    U.S. Solar Industry Has a Problem, And It's Not Tax Credits: It's China; Solar panel maker SunPower blamed tax incentives for its early 2016 troubles this week, but the U.S. industry faces a much bigger obstacle in the next 2 years.

    Tom Terrarosa, August 12, 2016 (The Street)

    “…[S]olar panel manufacturer SunPower (SPWR) sent shock waves through the industry this week when it said it would be deep in the red at year's end…[It had] expected to break even or profit as much as $50 million in 2016…[Its stock crashed 30% and the stocks of First Solar (FSLR) , SolarEdge Technologies (SEDG) and Canadian Solar(CSIQ) closed down between 3.5% and 10% before gaining back some of the loss]…Though part of the problem is a shift in production caused by tax credit extensions but global solar] companies face a larger issue in 2016: China…German solar equipment maker SMA Solar [is shutting] down production sites in Denver and Cape Town, South Africa due to pricing pressure caused by Chinese competitors…China's second half solar demand has fallen off a cliff…[so it will ship more] to the U.S. in the second half…That's bad news for U.S. solar panel manufacturers like SunPower and First Solar, who will have to compete on lower prices…[T]he U.S. has typically fought off this oversupply with taxes on exports from these Chinese solar companies…[but China is circumventing U.S. tariffs by shipping from offshore factories]…SunPower appears to combating this momentum by moving its supply closer to end-markets to cut costs…” click here for more
