Green Energy Mutual Funds, Renewable Power ETFs

Green Investment Funds for 2009 and beyond

For long term growth investors with cash on the side, or decent cash flow, dollar-cost-averaging into well managed, diversified high growth funds is something to seriously consider. An ecomic slowdown may mean that FSLR grows at 25% instead of 40%, but in most scenarios pure power producers and clean energy technology companies should be among the next bull market's leaders.

Though there is some risk in bottom fishing for mutual funds, it is dramatically minimzed relative to individual stock investing. A single firm's shares may be down because the company is in serious trouble and the stock is on its way to zero, but green energy mutual funds and clean power exchange traded funds (ETFs) are down because of market and sector comnditions, and over time will reflect the longer term potential of the sector and economy at large. With many clean power funds down 40% to 50% and more this is an opportune time for aggressive longterm investors to buy, and for medium risk longterm investors to start dollar-cost averaging into alternative energy and clean renewable power funds.

Here are some green power funds to consider:

Acuity Clean Environment Equity Fund

That's a very good list of green mutual funds. Thanks for publishing it.

I am just doing some research for green investing for my site, and I will be further researching the links you've provided.

It's interesting that you did not include Green Century Funds in your list. I think the way they promote themselves as "green" is misleading, as they invest in best-of-class companies with good environmental records but not pure-play "green" companies. Green Century Funds should probably be called socially responsible funds rather than green.

Anyway, thanks for the info.

Currently there is not a lot of choice in the green energy mutual fund market. With the added pressure the environmentalists are creating do you see this changing?

Do you seek funding and the bank you deal with on a day to day basis has refused to help you?

You might qualify for our new concept and get funded with our help.
Our focus is on socially responsible, green, energy producing projects. The facility is however not limited to these basics, as long as you have a strong management team, a viable business plan, and exceptional growth potential. We also enable finance for growth and consider any commercial business with the potential for a high ROI already within the first year. And we can work with any legal financial transaction offering an above average return on investment.
If your requirement is within these basics, please let us have your answer to this simple question: "Would your own bank provide you with finance, if we guarantee for your loan through Deutsche Bank?"
If you see chances to get funded on that basis, then you should tell us how much money you seek. We will engineer a solution for your immediate funding requirement and explain how you can put this concept to work for you.
