Solar Installation Hits A Record In 2020: ETF To Tap The Boom

Further, the industry fundamentals have been robust for the solar energy. This is primarily thanks to declining solar panel prices that will continue to attract new buyers, who want to save on otherwise uncertain energy costs. Rising demand for a broad range of solar products such as solar-powered generators, portable smartphone chargers, outdoor motion sensor lights, backpacks, and cookers also bode well for the industry.

Given the encouraging trends, industry research firm IBISWorld estimates that U.S. solar power revenues will more than double at $19.4 billion by 2026 from the 2020 revenues of $8.23 billion.  

In order to capitalize on the booming solar industry, investors should invest in the only pure-play Invesco Solar ETF (TAN - Free Report).
