List of Solar Energy ETFs

Updated Dec 5, 2019
Solar Energy exchange-traded funds (ETF) are the class of ETFs which invest in the stocks of companies which are involved in developing technology related to solar energy operations and processing, providing exclusive goods and services to the solar energy industry, working and serving on operating solar panels, transmission systems and even supporting new-age technologies like solar-powered highways and solar-powered automobiles. Additionally, such ETFs may also invest in companies which are doing research work in solar energy sector.

How Solar ETFs Work?

Most of such solar energy ETFs invest in global companies which are in the solar energy businesses. They may include names like First Solar Inc. (FSLR), SolarEdge Technologies Inc. (SEDG), Vivint Solar Inc. (VSLR), and Xinyi Solar Holdings Ltd.
The geographical span of such companies is global. Right from the U.S., Canada to Africa and China, such solar companies operate all across depending on the available abundance of solar energy, the necessary infrastructure for making it a viable business proposition, and the local government's policies towards solar energy. Solar energy ETFs select a few such companies, or they may replicate the portfolio holdings by investing in the companies which are constituent of solar-sector specific market index.
However, only a limited number of solar-specific ETFs are available in the market. Instead, one can check other broad-based ETFs in related categories, which include the Clean Energy ETF (list), Renewable Energy ETFs (list), Socially Responsible ETFs (list) and Natural Resources ETFs (list). One must understand the underlying investments made by such solar energy ETFs, or the associated ETFs. Since solar energy has a high dependence on seasons, the returns are also highly volatile. Expense ratios of such ETFs may vary which should be considered by the investors before taking investment decision.
