Clean Energy Stocks Get a Boost

Posted on the 16 March 2011 by 2ndgreenrevolution @2ndgreenrev

Clean Energy Stocks Get a BoostDespite a down day in the world stock markets yesterday, clean energy saw gains of ten percent or more in some cases. Yesterday we wrote about renewable energy’s appeal in the wake of the tragedy now facing Japan. Beyond the devastation wrought by the earthquake and tsunami, the nuclear power concerns rage on. Investorideas.com reported yesterday that clean energy stocks benefited from the recent troubles of nonrenewable sources. “From the BP oil spill, to Middle East turmoil spiking oil prices, to the pending nuclear meltdown in Japan; investors have to ask was cheap energy every really cheap? Clean energy may be the best bet for the long run- and the short term spike may just be the beginning of a bull run for green investors.”

While the market fluctuates and reacts to daily, and often instantaneous reports, the stability of clean energy presents an added bonus to investors. Here is a list of select solar and wind power companies that experienced a jump in their stock price as of midday yesterday (via investorideas.com):
