Raymond James is getting less negative on solar.  SunPower (SPWR), First Solar (FSLR), Trina (TSL), and Suntech (STP) have all been upgraded to Market Perform. It might've been wiser to make this call in November.  SPWR +3.3%. FSLR +2.8%. TSL +1%. STP +1.7% in spite of its boardroom drama.

    ummm, because he will make money selling the electricity?

     

    It's a smart investment long term. What kind of question is that?

    the point is that if he in fact can make money selling electricity that was generated by solar, then so can others. It means Solar has become viable.

    Solar farms cofigured as REITs makes sence for the small local investor to linkup with sunny local land owners.
