Being a libertarian and a renewable energy investor shouldn’t be an odd combination.
No one has ever second-guessed my libertarian tendencies when I invest in Big Oil, Big Pharma, or Big Ag.
But when it comes to renewable energy, for some reason, my libertarian sensibilities are called into question, typically as it pertains to government support of the solar industry.
As a free-market advocate, I actually reject government interference in any industry: oil, agriculture, renewable energy — it doesn’t matter.
In an honest free market, there would be no Department of Energy.
There would be no special tax breaks because there would be no taxation.
And the government would never pick and choose the winners and losers in any market as it would not have the authority to do so.
Of course, I understand that my love for free markets and laissez-faire capitalism is at odds with the reality that government interference is too entrenched in our society to ever be eradicated.
I don’t say this to be defeatist, by the way. It’s merely an observation of truth.
And while I will never support bureaucratic interference in free-market capitalism, I’d be lying if I said I wouldn’t profit from it.
If that makes me a hypocrite, so be it.
At least I’m a wealthy hypocrite — and thanks to President Biden’s overzealous plan to pump billions into the renewable energy industry, you better believe I’m going to wet my beak on this action. You should too.
To clarify, renewable energy isn’t the only industry that has received some very generous welfare from the U.S. government. Oil, gas, coal, and nuclear have all benefited nicely from decades' worth of taxpayer-funded handouts and backroom deals as well.
But I’m not here to start a debate over which energy sector has landed the most filthy lucre over the years. Instead, I’m here to tell you how you can make some easy money in the solar space.
And when I say "easy," that’s an understatement.
I don’t know if you saw the news last month, but according to the latest analysis from the International Energy Agency (IEA), global investment in energy is expected to reach $2.8 trillion this year.
More than half of that ($1.7 trillion) will be invested in clean energy technologies, with solar likely to be the biggest winner.
In fact, the IEA now expects solar investments to attract more than $1 billion a day in 2023.
Not in 2030.
Not in 2050.
But this year — 2023.
To put that in perspective, this exceeds the GDP of 158 countries.
Only 32 countries have a higher GDP than what the global solar energy industry will pull in this year.
Even as a die-hard renewable energy advocate, had you told me 10 years ago that the solar industry would be pulling in $365 billion in investment in 2023, I wouldn’t have believed you.

And there's a boatload of cash to be made.
Now, the obvious plays are the solar cell and panel manufacturers.
There are also the mining companies providing the silver, copper, and silicon required to manufacture today’s modern solar panels.
But for my money, the best way to play the massive growth in the solar industry is through something called private solar royalties.
Private solar royalties are monthly cash dividends you can earn from various solar projects across the globe.
It’s pretty simple, actually.
You see, there’s a special portal where some of the wealthiest investors in the world, such as Elon Musk, Jeff Bezos, and Warren Buffett, can log on, choose from a variety of different solar projects, invest in one or more of them, and then immediately begin earning monthly cash payments.
And these are not trivial payments.
Some of these investments are paying an estimated internal rate of return as high as 16%.
And the best part is that these monthly payments are not affected by the public markets because these are not public equities.
They’re private deals, and you earn your monthly payments directly from the company, regardless of whether we’re in a bull market or bear market. Your payments are locked in and cannot lose value if the Dow or Nasdaq tanks.
Make no mistake: There’s never been a better time to invest in solar, and there’s never been a safer way to profit from the rapidly growing solar market than with private solar royalties, which is why I put together this short beginner’s guide about them.
In it, you’ll learn exactly how private solar royalties work and how much you can make from them — which is a lot.
In fact, there’s one deal that can earn you an estimated $98,325 in royalties on monthly investments of just $100.
Of course, $100 is the minimum investment on these things, but you can certainly go in for more.
Bump that up to $1,000, and you’re looking at an eventual estimated $983,255.
That’s nearly $1 million — just from monthly royalty payments.
Like I said, it’s pretty much the easiest way to make a fortune in the booming solar market.
I would encourage you to lock in your royalty payments now, though, because there are only a few of these deals currently available — and once those close, there’s no telling how long you’ll have to wait for the next one to open up.
