Solar Company Profile: Yingli Clean Energy (NYSE: YGE)


Not so long ago, a company out of China, Yingli Clean Energy Holdings Co. Ltd., zoomed up to $41 per share. Today, with the hits the weakening solar energy companies have taken in 2011, Yingli Clean Energy is now just under $4.00 per share and in line with its 50-Day Moving Average. It is not that solar energy doesn’t work, It just doesn’t work as an investment. Until Now…..

There have been some iconic names investing in solar lately; Warren Buffett and Google have recently invested in solar energy farms that sell their energy to the grid which is different than manufacturing solar panels. Perhaps these solar energy companies went public too soon. The fact is the world has a surplus of solar panels and a lack of demand. In addition, governments worldwide are trimming the financial support that they have poured into the solar industry.

With that said, Solar power offers one of the few current “mass-scale” solutions to meet the world’s incredible demand for clean and renewable power. The conversion from sunlight to solar energy produces no pollution or greenhouse gas emissions. Today’s leading companies are developing more affordable and efficient technologies that will continue to fuel growth in the area for years to come.
