Top 5 Clean Energy Stocks To Own Right Now

Freshman Congress member Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and veteran lawmaker Sen. Edward Markey are introducing a resolution spelling out congressional support for a Green New Deal — an ambitious plan to remake the U.S. economy and drastically reduce the nation’s greenhouse gas emissions.

The resolution largely sticks to a blueprint Ocasio-Cortez laid out when she proposed creating a House select committee to establish a Green New Deal. That framework called for generating 100 percent of the nation’s power from renewable sources, making all buildings energy efficient and eliminating carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gas emissions from the transportation sector and industry — all within about 10 years.

The plan also proposes massive investments in research and development to make the U.S. a leader in clean energy technology. In addition, the Green New Deal envisioned by Ocasio-Cortez aims to implement progressive policies such as a federal jobs guarantee, basic income and universal health care.

Top 5 Clean Energy Stocks To Own Right Now: Xcel Energy Inc.(XEL)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Maxx Chatsko]

Investors wouldn’t be surprised to learn that clean energy provider NextEra Energy is one of the renewable energy stocks most important to American wind power. However, the relatively unheard of natural gas and electric utility Xcel Energy (NASDAQ:XEL) doesn’t seem to garner nearly the same level of attention.

    Renewable energy sources like solar and wind power are growing fast, gaining market share in the world’s energy markets. Companies that focus just on renewable power are easy to find, but they aren’t the only way to gain exposure to this trend. In fact, we are also a long way from a world powered solely by renewables, with current power options deeply entrenched and supported by years of strong demand ahead of them. This will provide existing energy suppliers ample room to shift with the times. Which is why it shouldn’t be too surprising to find out that old-school energy companies like NextEra Energy, Inc. (NYSE:NEE), Xcel Energy Inc. (NASDAQ:XEL), and The AES Corporation (NYSE:AES) are quickly bringing renewables into their businesses.
