A couple of months ago, one of those bulls, FinerPoints, touched on the tailwinds working in Clean Energy's favor:

Waste Management fleet has already started their transition over as a result of the economical benefits. I'm certain that the trucking industry will follow suit. Corporate America loves the smell of profits in the morning! The growth story? When natural has use finally gets to Main St. -- our cars and possibly homes. Usually great growth stories start out B2B (commercial) & then filters into daily life. ...

Sooner or later, America can reap the benefits financially by contributing to a healthier environment.
