5 Solar Stocks Poised to Shine Long Term

As solar power topped 2015’s list of the fastest-growing energy sources, these solar stocks are well positioned to continue their growth.

SmallCapPower | June 9, 2016: Fossil fuel major BP Plc recently released its annual statistical review of world energy usage. From that report, solar power generation grew 33% year over year, mainly attributable to massive and continual reductions in costs. In comparison, wind power grew ~17%, while oil and natural gas barely gained at ~3% each. Up from just 0.8% of the world energy consumption a decade ago, solar power is certainly growing at a rapid pace. In order to take advantage of this trend, we found five solar stocks that are involved in renewable energy infrastructure – the sub-industry we currently see as the most lucrative.
