Renewable energy from wind and solar is now competitive with the grid, opening up a trillion-dollar market for investors. Leases from SolarCity (NASDAQ:SCTY.DL) or SunPower (NASDAQ:SPWR) with $0 down make solar power affordable and economical for homeowners. When added to Tesla Motors' (NASDAQ:TSLA) energy storage made at its gigafactory, the possibilities for disrupting the grid improve tremendously. 

Then there are massive power projects from First Solar (NASDAQ:FSLR), which are being passed down to new YieldCos like NRG Yield (NYSE:CWEN)

Motley Fool solar analyst Travis Hoium covers why this space is so exciting for investors and how they can play this billion-dollar opportunity.
