Alternative Energy ETF

Alternative energy still is sustaining itself by the will of the public to diminish the emission of traditional energy sources. The price of alternative energy is in most cases still too high to really compete with traditional sources of energy.

So this alternative energy ETF thrives on government regulations and the will to make this world a cleaner one. As long as coal, gas and oil will be around this situation will stay more or less the same.

But in a time when governments are stepping up clean environment regulations this alternative energy industry will blossom. Growth is always the best scenario for investors so looking at it from this viewpoint things look sunny and bright.
