First Solar Inc.
First Solar Inc., America’s biggest solar panel manufacturer, takes a lead in our rating. However, the firm has not been doing well lately. In the fourth quarter of 2022, the company's earnings per share are expected to dip by $0.17 compared to the previous reading of $1.23. In addition, the solar panel producer reported a loss of $68 million in the third quarter of 2022. The drop came due to prolonged disruptions in supply chains. Nevertheless, the situation is stabilizing. Over the past 12 months, the company's value rose by 126.1% per share. Moreover, the solar panel manufacturer has started the new year on a positive note: its shares have gained 20.7% and are still on the rise. First Solar Inc. is predicted to become one of the biggest beneficiaries of green energy. Deutsche Bank analysts give First Solar Inc. a positive outlook and note that the company is loaded with orders until the end of 2025. They say that the firm will maintain growth owing to high demand for integrated modules. In November 2022, First Solar announced a $1 billion investment to build a solar panel plant in Alabama, US, as part of a project to increase the company's production capacity up to 10 gigawatts. The construction of this plant is scheduled for 2025.
Array Technologies Inc. is the second promising green company in our list. Situated in the state of New Mexico, US, the firm develops and produces ground-based solar monitoring systems. Array Technologies shares are believed to be an attractive investment option. After a long-lasting decline in price, the company’s share value skyrocketed when Piper Sandler economists raised its rating from neutral to high. They now see the firm’s stock price up by 20.4% to $28. Moreover, they say Array Technologies has great growth potential. Analysts estimate Array Technologies' order book at $1.9 billion. The firm has sustained a balance between received and completed orders, which could help boost revenues as well as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization (EBITDA) in fiscal 2023. Two years ago, the IPO pricing valued Array Technologies at about $2.79 billion. However, in the course of a rally, its value doubled to $5 billion. The company’s current market capitalization has decreased slightly to $3.5 billion. Meanwhile, its 12-month earnings have reached 111.2%.
Enphase Energy Inc.
Enphase Energy Inc., an American developer and manufacturer of household energy-saving technologies for the solar photovoltaic industry, is the third potentially prosperous firm in our rating.

In the long term, Enphase Energy Inc. shows staggering performance, with annual earnings of 25%. Still, experts warn of a correction in the stock price. At the same time, the company’s steady growth is seen as a hedge against negative effects. According to a consensus forecast, the firm may record growth of 70.8% ($704.92 billion) year-on-year in the current quarter. In addition, unlike other companies in the solar energy industry, Enphase Energy Inc. may see a significant increase in profits in 2023.
