    Going to roll the dice and start a new, small position in this stock. I realize that it is close to their all-time high but very promising with either candidate winning the election. After doing my research, this is the name that kept popping up.

    Just bought 50 shares. If Biden wins and we get a mega stimulus billions will pour into FSLR for green new deal projects. Just hedging my bets.

    $120 target, why?
    Jim Cramer once found 120/80 stock price rule: when a stock hit $80, its next stop will be $120.Given solar stocks are on fire with a few forming high tight flag pattern, once No.1 solar stock FLSR will play cat-up-game.

    Today FSLR soldily broke-out, looking for $120 in 1 ont month!

    Took a new position and also bought calls. Riding the momentum up and with an expected Biden win, this will easily move above $100.

    Honestly as traders we should do our part to help this world bid up companies trying to help change the world. TSLA, FSLR, RUN, among many others. If we do not stop pumping carbon monoxide in to the atmosphere and deforestation we won’t have a planet to leave to our future generations to love and cherish. The selfishness of the human race has been meet by the call of the younger generation to stand up and stop this madness. We have the technology to help out stop our destructive ways. The US NEEDS to STAND up as a LEADER in the push for carbon neutral. Right now we are way behind other countries in the push. WAKE up AMERICA!

    I can understand interest in First Solar if Biden wins the election which is favored. What I don't understand is why the stock is parabolic, up $30 in just the last 5 weeks. This is way overdone, as analysts are coming out to downgrade the stock.

    The big hope on Tuesday is that fundamental, company-specific news is welded to general sector bets for a thrill ride. That company news can be any combination of order gains, margins advance, cost reduction, and tech news.

    GM Partnership to Bring First Solar Energy to 3 Factories
    GM agreed to a partnership through which three of its Midwest factories will draw on First Solar energy.
    The Detroit automaker signed a 180-megawatt power-purchase agreement with First Solar, the largest manufacturer of solar panels and systems in the U.S.

    The solar energy for this project will come from the Arkansas facility of First Solar, which is based in Tempe, Ariz. GM will have the option to store this renewable energy for future use, a first for the company.

    Trump moves to aid US solar panel-makers by eliminating China tariff loophole

    President Trump said in a proclamation that he would eliminate a loophole granted by his administration that has allowed certain imported solar panels to avoid tariffs.

    The White House has sought to claw back the exemption for bifacial, or two-sided, solar panels granted by U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer in 2019. At the time, bifacial panels were a specialized product, but one that the tariffs had prompted some U.S. manufacturers to begin developing.

    In the proclamation on Saturday, Trump said the exclusion "has impaired and is likely to continue to impair the effectiveness" of the original tariff action intended to boost U.S. manufacturing.

    In addition, Trump said that tariffs scheduled to fall from 20% to 15% in their fourth year will instead be set at 18%.The directive is the latest effort by the White House to close a loophole that has allowed U.S. solar developers to import bifacial panels tariff-free since 2019.

    The White House had intended to issue the proclamation earlier in the week, envisaging an event at First Solar in Ohio, plans thwarted by Trump's coronavirus diagnosis and subsequent hospitalization, an industry source said.

    President Donald Trump said in a proclamation that it’s necessary to eliminate a loophole his administration granted in 2019 that’s helped solar developers avoid tariffs on certain imported panels.

    In Saturday’s proclamation, Trump said it’s necessary to revoke the exemption for two-sided “bifacial” panels, contending that the loophole has “impaired and is likely to continue to impair the effectiveness” of tariffs intended to bolster U.S. solar manufacturing.

    Because of that, Trump said in the announcement, it’s also necessary to set tariffs for the fourth year covered by a solar quota regime at 18%. The tariffs had been set to drop to 15% from 20% in their fourth year.

    Microsoft is collaborating with First Solar, an Arizona-headquartered solar energy company, on their Sun Streams 2 photovoltaic (PV) solar power plant, which will offset the energy usage of the new campus from its opening in 2021 with solar energy once the facility is operational. Clean solar PV energy displaces the water needed in the traditional electricity generation process. First Solar’s lowest carbon solar PV technology doesn't require water to generate electricity and is ideally suited to meet the growing energy and water needs of arid, water-limited regions. By displacing conventional grid electricity in Arizona, First Solar’s Sun Streams 2 Project is expected to save 356 million liters of water annually.

    This game-changing solar company recycles old panels into new ones
    The first wave of solar panels is reaching the end of their useful lives. Now they can become new solar panels instead of trash.

    At a recycling plant in Ohio, next to the company’s manufacturing facility, First Solar uses custom technology to disassemble and recycle old panels, recovering 90% of the materials inside. It runs similar recycling systems in Germany and Malaysia.

    By recycling materials, the total environmental impact of each panel drops. The original solar panel, Wade says, might last 30 or even 40 years. If 95% of the semiconductor material can be recovered and put back in a new panel, and the cycle continues to repeat, the original material could stay in use as long as 1,200 years. At the moment, because of the huge demand for solar panels and the fact that many haven’t yet reached the end of their life, the total percentage of recycled material in the company’s new panels is low. But it will grow over time.
    The first wave of solar panels is reaching the end of their useful lives. Now they can become new solar panels instead of trash.
