Trina Falls as Japan Outlook Sinks Solar Makers: China Overnight

Trina Solar Ltd. and ReneSola Ltd., two of the world’s largest solar manufacturers, led a decline in Chinese stocks traded in the U.S. on concern Japanese demand for renewable energy will weaken.

Trina, China’s biggest profitable panel maker, dropped 5.6 percent to a seven-week low at the close in New York. Yingli Green Energy Holding Co., the world’s largest solar producer, slipped to the lowest level since June while wafer maker ReneSola sank 7 percent. The Bloomberg Global Large Solar Index slumped 3 percent for its third day of declines.
