The Solar Market Is Booming Again

The solar market is back on its feet again after a rough few years dealing with oversupply. The Japanese market is booming and U.S. residential installations are steadily growing. SunPower (NASDAQ: SPWR  ) and Canadian Solar (NASDAQ: CSIQ  ) have already reported better than expected earnings, while Trina Solar (NYSE: TSL  ) and Yingli Green Energy (NYSE: YGE  ) have already raised guidance. But not all solar companies are enjoying the boom, as exemplified by First Solar's (NASDAQ: FSLR  ) struggles. Motley Fool contributor Travis Hoium covers the trends that investors should look for in the video below. 

Solar power is just one source revolutionizing our energy picture -- the other is natural gas. The Motley Fool is offering a comprehensive look at companies set to soar during the transformation taking place in the energy industry, highlighting three companies that are spreading their wings.

    I'm sure glad that the solar industry is booming again?? I guess that explains why my solar holdings did so great today; Solarcity dropped 4.43% and Sunpower went down 3.61%. They're "booming" me into the poor house.
