Thanks for the list. I am familiar with PBW, which is relatively well diversified, and is a recommendation of TMF Rule Breakers portfolio. These are pretty volatile etf's--I would wait for a better entry price, but that's just me.I would compare the etf's--how diversified are they? Are they limited to domestic stocks, or do they include foreign companies (some of the best alt-energy plays, like Vestas, are foreign companies)? Do they concentrate more on one type of energy than another (favoring solar over wind, for example), or are they pretty even-handed. In general, you can probably do better by picking individual companies--assuming you choose wisely. A $3,700 investment I made in Vestas (VWSYF) a couple years back (around the same time TMF RB recommended PBW) is now worth about $23,000. During that same time period, PBW has gone up approximately 10%. I can understand the appeal of the ETF's--but I think you can do better with individual stocks.
