Solar Integrators Deliver Growth

While the whole market seemed to be slipping downhill on September 15th, there was one bold company that actually listed publicly that day and seemed to roar straight out of the gates. That company was Premier Power Renewable Energy Inc., which launched on the Over the Counter (OTC) bulletin board via a reverse merger rather than a standard IPO.

Premier is by no means the only big solar installer/integrator play out there. Another to consider is Akeena Solar which with a market cap of $108 million, is a similar company to PPRW in size and in their operating regions. Akeena Solar focuses on markets in California, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Connecticut. But Akeena is also more focused on residential and small commercial market which according to SolarBuzz, a research and consulting firm, represent approximately 65 percent of the U.S. market, and will continue to do so through 2010.

Apart from these two there are hundreds of smaller private companies in the integration and installation space operating more locally. They'll offer competition and some may emerge in time as public companies too. And there are companies like BP who design and install systems as well as manufacturing panels. But being an integrated energy company, they are more levered to oil and cannot be regarded as an investment play on solar.

Disclosure: Paulo Nery does not currently own shares of any of the companies named above.
