On CAPS, 97% of the 1,753 members who have rated Clean Energy believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just last month, one of those Fools, LouPerna, succinctly summed up the Clean Energy bull case for our community:

With [natural gas] prices low and with major portions of the Natural Gas Hwy complete, industry has a compelling reason to switch to natural gas. This should lead to major revenue and profit increases over the next few years. The wide moat should discourage competition.

The movement toward alternative energy is gaining momentum. One potential opportunity in this field is Clean Energy Fuels, which focuses its natural gas efforts primarily on trucking and fleets. It's poised to make a big impact on an essential industry. Read all about Clean Energy Fuels in our brand-new report. Just click here to get started.

    "Clean Energy" has severe problems. Wind farms are getting resistance from green groups for destroying the environment and birds! Solar farms also destroy the environment as vast areas of land are needed to make a few unreliable watts. In fact, the concern for both wind and solar is the need for fossil plants to be online to take over. The maintenance costs of the back up plants are going to increase the cost of energy immensely. Basically, the renewables are looking unreliable and costly.
