Solar power is becoming more cost effective by the day, and some of the biggest companies in the U.S. are buying into its potential. Wal-Mart (NYSE: WMT  ) , Costco (NASDAQ: COST  ) , and Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL  ) are now three of the biggest corporate solar installers in the U.S., and they continue to build more solar every year. 

How can investors play this? SolarCity (NASDAQ: SCTY  ) and SunPower (NASDAQ: SPWR  )  are the two biggest players in commercial solar, with SolarCity partnering with Wal-Mart and Apple using SunPower's technology.
