Top Solar Stocks for Q3 2023

Solar stocks have failed to shine over the past 12 months despite a continuing shift to renewable energy sources and lucrative government incentives to install solar infrastructure. Disrupted supply chains, rising interest rates, and policy uncertainty all have presented challenges for this burgeoning sector.

The sector’s largest exchange-traded fund (ETF) by assets under management (AUM), the Invesco Solar ETF (TAN), has shed 34.1% over the past year. By comparison, the large-capitalization Russell 1000 Index has gained nearly 10.5%.

Below, we review the top three solar stocks with the best value, the fastest growth, and the most momentum, respectively. All figures are as of late August 2023.
