06:52 EDTFSLRJapanese judge blocks relaunch of nuclear plants, NY Times says
A Japanese judge yesterday blocked the country's government from restarting two nuclear power plants, according to The New York Times. None of Japan's 48 reactors has been operating since the Fukushima disaster, and the judge's decision is potentially significant because it directly challenges the government's new nuclear safety standards, the newspaper stated, adding that the two affected reactors may not reopen for months or even years. 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).
