A Japanese judge yesterday blocked the country's government from restarting two nuclear power plants, according to The New York Times.

Cameco (CCJ) develops uranium used by nuclear plants. Solar energy companies whose products may be used to supplement nuclear power in Japan include Canadian Solar (CSIQ), First Solar (FSLR), JA Solar (JASO), SunPower (SPWR), Trina Solar (TSL) and Yingli Green Energy (YGE).
