3 Top Renewable Energy Stocks to Watch in September

Premium dividend growth with a matching price tag

Matt DiLallo  (NextEra Energy Partners):  Clean energy company NextEra Energy Partners offers income investors an enticing proposition. The company anticipates that it can increase its 3.7%-yielding dividend at a 12% to 15% annual rate through at least 2023. Add the two together, and the wind and solar power company could generate total annual returns in the 16% to 19% range over that time frame. Powering NextEra Energy Partners' forecast is the expectation that the company can continue acquiring cash-flow-producing  wind and solar energy facilities from its parent company, which has one of the largest renewable power businesses in the world.

However, there's just one catch with that forecast: NextEra Energy Partners needs to maintain its current valuation multiple to generate those returns. At more than 20 times cash flow, that seems unlikely since many rival high-yielding renewable energy companies currently sell for around a low-teens multiple of their cash flow. While those peers only expect high-single-digit annual dividend growth -- and therefore should trade at a cheaper valuation -- NextEra Energy Partners' premium price is a bit too rich in my opinion.

How New Jersey can finance its bold new clean energy targets

Green banks leverage public funds to catalyze private investment in clean energy projects and sustainable businesses. Companies put this capital to work, expanding their businesses, building new renewable-powered projects, and administering clean energy programs.

That’s great for the businesses, but what about New Jerseyans? As companies expand and undertake new clean energy projects, they need to hire more workers. Green bank financing leads to job growth and more employed New Jerseyans. New Jersey residents could also benefit from green bank loans that support innovative community solar projects that can provide low- and middle-income families access to solar power.

Building on Past Success

New Jersey has done commendable work thus far to transform the Garden State into a green state. For years, New Jersey has been at the forefront of solar development across the United States. Moreover, the recent passage of forward-looking legislation has generated momentum for clean energy projects. With an established green bank, the state can build on this momentum and meet growing demand for environmentally-conscious investment.

Should intellectual property rights be stripped to stop global warming?

No. Nothing should be done about global warming, especially not taking away people's rights. Any warming is because of fewer sun spots on the sun (sun spots give off less radiation).
