Solar Stocks Get a Two Day Run with General Markets

Renewable Energy Stocks Sector Close-Up on Solar Stocks; Solar Stocks Get a Two Day Run with General Markets

POINT ROBERTS, WA —November 26, 2008 -- www.RenewableEnergyStocks.com,

a leading investor news and research portal for the renewable energy sector within Investorideas.com, presents a sector close-up on solar stocks following a two day run for some of the leaders. Solar stocks traded up with the general markets but investors are cautiously optimistic following the recent speech from President-elect Obama, discussing job creation in the sector.

Renewable Energy Stocks solar expert, J. Peter Lynch commented in his most recent column, that this market may represent a generational buying opportunity, "I agree that solar P/E's and expectations were FAR too optimistic and missed a number of rather obvious problems that were rapidly approaching (i.e. coming silicon over supply), however, at this time I believe that current expectations have moved equally to the opposite extreme with FAR too much pessimism."

Kipp & Zonen - DustIQ the novel soiling monitoring solution for solar panels

Soiling of the panel glass is one of the major problems in the rapidly expanding solar energy market, with the attendant loss of efficiency and reduction in performance ratios. Now, there's a new, simple and very cost-effective alternative. Based on Kipp & Zonen's unique Optical Soiling Measurement (OSM) technology, DustIQ can be easily added to new or existing solar arrays and integrated into plant management systems. The unit is mounted to the frame of a PV panel and does not need sunlight to operate. It continuously measures the transmission loss through glass caused by soiling, so that the reduction in light reaching the solar cells can be calculated.
