14:07 EDTFSLRFirst Solar set to build largest PV solar power plant in Latin America
First Solar announced it has received board approval from the Overseas Private Investment Corporation, the U.S. Government’s development finance institution, and IFC, a member of the World Bank Group, for financing to support construction of the 141MW(ac) Luz del Norte solar power plant in Chile’s Atacama Desert. The loans, which are expected to close later this summer, clear the way for First Solar to proceed with construction planning at the site, which is near the city of Copiapo. Terms of the deals were not disclosed. The OPIC board approved a loan of up to $230M; the IFC board approved a $60M loan. The Luz del Norte project is the first of several projects First Solar has in its regional development pipeline, and will be the company’s initial project to start construction in Chile. The Chilean government’s National Energy Strategy includes expansion of the country’s renewable energy capacity to 20% of its total generated power by 2025. Energy from Luz del Norte will be supplied into the Chilean Central Interconnected System, contributing significantly towards this goal

13:27 EDTFSLRSolar names rally after analyst sees China hitting target
Shares of solar energy companies are climbing after research firm Canaccord issued a positive note on the sector. WHAT'S NEW: After touring parts of Asia, Canaccord analyst Josh Baribeau wrote that he continues to believe that the Asian solar market is "strong and poised to tighten." Following a slow start, China is likely to hit its "aggressive" goal of installing 13 gigawatts of solar energy systems this year, driven by its recent policy changes, Baribeau stated. Moreover, the country will probably be "a resilient" market in coming year, the analyst added. Other markets are also staying strong, and demand and prices for solar components are likely to tighten with supply growing at a limited rate, Baribeau believes. The analyst remains upbeat about Canadian Solar's (CSIQ) project pipeline, contending that the company has been more successful in making deals overseas than its Chinese peers. He raised his price target on the shares to $48 from $44 while keeping a Buy rating on the stock. Canadian Solar is based in Canada but has manufacturing facilities in China. PRICE ACTION: In mid-afternoon trading, Canadian Solar climbed 2.5% to $38.50. Among Chinese solar companies, JinkoSolar (JKS) rose 2% to $31, Trina Solar (TSL) gained 1.5% to $14, and China Sunergy (CSUN) advanced 1.5% to $3.10. Among American solar companies, First Solar (FSLR) gained 1% to $68 and SunPower (SPWR) rose 1% to $35.
