SunPower (SPWRA) was up by 3%, even though it has yet to announce a date for its earnings -- and that was the second-largest gain in solar on Wednesday.
Italian solar officials from Kerself have previously indicated the level of reductions they expected in the existing feed-in tariff scheme .
While Wednesday was a broadly positive day for solar stocks, GT Solar continued to slide after it opened the week in a selloff precipitated by a major insider stock sale by one if its early venture capital investors.
