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

US Battery - Solar RE L16XC Renewable Energy Battery

Our batteries have Xtreme thick plates with (XC Diamond Plate Technology) added to them. They have been designed for hours of heavy discharge each day, followed by a fast recharge during the daylight hours. Very few batteries can take the grueling deep discharge-recharge cycle every day for long periods of time. U.S. Battery has proven time and time again that our solar battery line can stand up to this type of battery torture day in and day out for years to come. When you demand reliable energy storage count on U.S. Battery every time!
