Solar Energy Index Outperforms S&P in Q2 2017

Lincoln International's Solar Energy Stock Index: Q2 2017

Contributed by | Lincoln International

Similar to the S&P 500 Index, the Solar Stock Index is a market cap weighted composite index. The index is prepared by first selecting a base period, in this case, Q1 2009, and totaling the market caps of the companies in each sector in this period. This period and total market cap is set to a base index, in this case, 1000. Next, for each sector, the current period’s total market cap is calculated, divided by the base period’s total market cap and then multiplied by the base index (1000). The result is the index value used for plotting in the graph on the following page.

Solar Energy Highlights

  • Overall Solar Index increased 14.7% from last quarter
  • Wafers / Ingots Index decreased 17.2% from last quarter
  • Cells / Modules Index decreased 3.5% from last quarter
  • Vertically Integrated Index increased 40.1% from last quarter
  • EPC Integrators / Developers Index increased 5.8% from last quarter

GreenFasten™ solar panel roof mount hardware, watertight, USA made

The GreenFasten™ - GF1 system utilizes the patented watertight technology EcoFasten Solar® is known for. The flashing is fit with our EPDM rubber bushing and when used with a compatible EcoFasten Solar compression bracket (milled with countersink), a watertight seal is created, which protects the integrity of the roof. Requiring just a single fastener (lag bolt or self-drilling), GreenFasten provides the fastest install in the industry and will not void roofing manufacturer's warranties. Backed by IAPMO certification, GreenFasten delivers a mounting solution for all new or existing (retrofit) composition shingle roofs, and is the most cost-effective solution available. Like all of the solar roof mount solutions in our line of products, GreenFasten is made in the USA using recycled materials.
