Alternative Energy Industry Returns
Alternative energy companies posted solid gains on average for the past 12 months, with energy efficiency and solar showing the strongest returns. Almost two-thirds of all the alternative energy stocks that the Roen Financial Report tracks have posted double-digit gains in price in the past year, and 18 stocks have more than doubled! Five solar stocks have gains north of 200%.
The largest gainer by far has been Revolution Lighting Technologies (RVLT), a small North Carolina based LED and fiber optic lighting manufacturer whose stock is worth seven times what it was a year ago. Even though sales have been flat and earnings are hovering around the zero mark for this company, investors see a positive future for LEDs as energy efficiency ventures continue to gain traction.

Invest Solar: Solar Energy Investment Opportunities
Solar energy started as one of the hottest investment themes of this decade, but has since become extremely volatile. Despite this, solar is being deployed on a scale that would have been hard to imagine just 10 years ago. In the U.S. alone, an estimated 3.3 gigawatts of new solar capacity was installed in 2012, which is as much as was installed in the 4 previous years combined!
Solar’s rapid growth and erratic stock prices have created a very challenging investment environment, so investors are wise to understand the different types of solar companies. Overall, I believe solar is set to continue its growth and prove an excellent long-term investment if you are in the right stocks. Be sure to read Invest Solar: Solar Energy Investment Opportunities
