According to The Wall Street Journal, Europe is proposing a tariff of between 48% and 68% for Chinese-made solar panels. Solar giants like Yingli Green Energy , LDK Solar , Trina Solar , and Suntech Power will be negatively affected by this, which will make it even harder for them to make a profit. The Motley Fool's Lauren Kuczala sat down with Fool.com contributor Travis Hoium to discuss which companies will be hurt and which will benefit.
