Consistent research and development efforts to improve solar cell efficiency have yielded positive results for stock investors year over year. The increasing focus in the U.S. on green energy will see more and more power being produced from solar cells.

In 2013, only 0.2 percent of the power produced in the U.S. will come from solar generation, according to a report published by the U.S. Energy Information Administration. However, solar generation is expected to grow by 79 percent in 2013 and 49 percent in 2014. The whole solar market is predicted to provide nice returns for the long-term investors, with Canadian Solar Inc. leading the sector.
