Best Solar Energy Stocks to Look For in 2024

Great news: Our Prime Minister has announced that one crore households in India will be equipped with rooftop solar under the Pradhan Mantri Suryodaya Yojana! 

This fantastic initiative is expected to reduce the electricity bills of the poor and middle class and make India self-reliant in the energy field. 

This move is a clear indication that the solar energy sector in India is booming. Which means Solar energy sector ki Mauja hi Mauja!!

So, in this article, we will explore some of the solar stocks that could benefit from this scheme.

Economic Implications and Investor Sentiment

The announcement of the Pradhan Mantri Suryoday Yojana has had a positive impact on renewable energy stocks in the Indian stock market. 

Companies like Tata Power and the Indian Renewable Energy Development Agency (IREDA) experienced significant gains, with their shares rallying over 5%. 

This surge in investor sentiment can be attributed to the growing advancements in India's renewable energy sector and the increased demand for solar panel systems driven by the government's initiatives.
