One of the main concerns is the efficiency of solar panels, which only convert a small percentage of the available solar energy into usable energy. The reliability of solar energy is also an issue, especially in certain geographic regions.
The more electricity you want to produce, the more solar panels you'll need, since you'll want to collect as much sunlight as possible. Photovoltaic solar panels require a lot of space and some roofs aren't big enough to fit the number of solar panels you'd like to have.
Companies in the solar industry come from multiple sectors, including utilities, industry and energy, and include popular stocks such as SolarEdge Technologies (SEDG) and Sunrun Inc. The solar energy industry builds and installs devices to capture energy from the Sun and convert it into electrical energy.
