Calamities such as global warming are wreaking havoc on the Earth. With an ever-increasing population, more energy will be needed in the coming days. The most alarming concern is that conventional sources of energy are in short supply and pollution is increasing. In that regard, there is a great transformation taking place within the energy sector, as users are opting for sources like solar energy. Therefore, solar energy stocks have become increasingly popular over the last few years.
In the energy sector, solar power is one of the most promising segments. Energy needs will grow exponentially in the coming decades, and solar power will play a major role in supplying them. Almost half of the U.S. power generation sector will be generated by renewable sources by 2050, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration.
According to Wood Mackenzie Power & Renewables, achieving 1 million solar installations in the U.S. took forty long years. However, the next million came in just three years. Solar installations are projected to surpass 3 million by 2021 alone.
Thus, the solar power sector offers a lot of potential for investors. Let’s look at solar energy stocks to buy in the solar energy sector for 2021.
