ReneSola announced its unaudited financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2014. The company shipped 46.8% of PV modules to Europe, but the depreciation of the European currencies led to a foreign exchange loss of US$13.7%. A delay in shipment because of anticipation of new lower minimum imported prices also impacted Renesola’s net revenue.
