A Solar Energy Secret Uncovered: Real Goods Solar (24/7 Wall St.)
Last Friday shares of Real Goods Solar, Inc. (NASDAQ:RSOL) virtually doubled. Shares are up another 50% so far today and have been trading around $6 a share after posting a new 52-week high of $6.43 earlier. That’s still about 30% below the solar PV installer’s 2008 IPO price of $9.25, but after languishing below $2 a share for more than a year, no one’s complaining. Real Goods has signed a deal with homebuilder Lennar Corporation (NYSE:LEN) to install solar PV at some of the homebuilder’s new communities in California, with a potential to expand to other areas of the country. Both Real Goods and SolarCity operate exclusively in the U.S., so neither is taking advantage of the expanding solar market in Japan.

A Hidden Gem In The Solar Industry? (Seeking Alpha)
Real Goods Solar, Inc. (NASDAQ:RSOL) is an installer based in Louisville, Colorado and operating in eleven states; they have deployed over 100 MW of solar since 2008. They have found particular success with the educational market. Big institutions such as Wal-Mart (WMT) and the military seem to be deploying more solar because it saves them money, and schools and universities are no exception. I was pleased to hear, on the May 9 earnings release conference call, that the company has cut operating expenses by 6% in the past year.

Global Solar Market Could Be ‘Carved Up’; US, EU, China in Negotiations (StreetInsider.com)
According to reports in the New York Times, the US, EU, and China are in negotiations over solar panel anti-dumping cases. A plan is taking shape that would “carve up the global solar panel market into a series of regional markets.” If negations are successful, tariffs in the U.S. could be replaced. The news comes amid a massive rally in solar stocks today. First Solar, Inc. (Nasdaq: FSLR), SolarCity Corporation (Nasdaq: SCTY), LDK Solar Co., Ltd. (NYSE: LDK), JA Solar Holdings Co., Ltd. (Nasdaq: JASO), and Real Goods Solar, Inc. (NASDAQ:RSOL) are among gainers.
