2 Renewable Energy Companies Worth Knowing About

For investors looking for potentially booming growth stocks, the renewable energy space is certainly a direction to look.

Two companies that have really been firing on all cylinders lately are SunPower (NASDAQ: SPWR  ) and Solazyme (NASDAQ: SZYM  ) .
