Why Solar Is More Profitable Than Hydrogen

While I understand the enthusiasm about transitioning to a more diversified energy economy, it seems like when the government calls the shots, it always turns into a disaster.

Let me give you an example.

Last week, Reuters published a piece about how the Gulf Coast port in Corpus Christi, Texas, is in the running for nearly $1 billion from the Biden administration to create a hydrogen production hub where fuel would be produced by electrolyzing water. This would result in a decarbonization of heavy-emitting industries. 

But here’s the problem…

That region is starved for water, which is something that’s required in the production of hydrogen — and a lot of it too!

The hub they’re planning would require access to literally millions of gallons of water something that is unlikely to be consistently available in that region of the U.S. 

Per the Reuters article:

Reuters interviewed six researchers who study hydrogen as green power and had exclusive access to an analysis by Rystad Energy that showed the Biden administration's vision of low-carbon hydrogen may run into a challenge that is itself exacerbated by climate change: water scarcity.

Producing hydrogen requires enormous amounts of fresh water in a world increasingly affected by climate-driven drought.

Nine of the 33 projects on the Department of Energy short list for hydrogen hubs are in highly water-stressed regions, according to Rystad data.

Those locations include Southern California, Colorado, Kansas, and New Mexico as well as Texas. Globally, the picture is even worse, with more than 70% of proposed green hydrogen projects located in water-stressed regions like the Middle East.

While I enthusiastically support the development of a vibrant hydrogen industry, the reality is that those who want to “decarbonize” everything right now will continue to rely on renewable energy, particularly solar, which this year alone will land $1 billion a day in investments across the entire industry.

To put that into perspective, that’s $365 billion for the year.

Only 32 countries have a higher GDP than what the global solar energy industry will pull in this year. 

I’m not saying hydrogen doesn’t have a future. It absolutely does.

But as the world transitions away from a fossil fuel-dependent energy economy, the smart money is betting big on solar.

And I’m talking about everyone from Jeff Bezos and Bill Gates to Elon Musk and Warren Buffett.

However, these guys aren’t ponying up millions for solar stocks. Instead, they’re ponying up millions to cash in on solar power royalties, which are essentially monthly royalty checks they get from operational solar power projects all over the world. 

If you’re a regular reader of these pages, you’ve heard about these solar power royalties before because I won’t stop talking about them, and the reason why is simple.

These are the smartest and most profitable opportunities in the solar space that can potentially turn as little as $100 into $98,325.

And this isn’t hyperbole, either.

Thanks to a recent change in an obscure SEC law, you can now join the wealthiest 1% in investing in million-dollar solar energy projects that pay monthly dividends — in some cases with internal rates of return as high as 14%.

And the terms on these deals last as long as 20 years.

Think about that for a moment…

For the next 20 years, you can earn monthly royalty checks on a one-time investment of as little as $100.

Of course, if you want to make some real money, go in for a monthly $1,000 investment, and at the end of the term, you could be looking at a profit in excess of $983,250.

That’s nearly $1 million from nothing more than monthly solar power dividends. 

That may not be Elon Musk money, but I don’t know anyone who would turn down nearly $1 million from such a simple monthly dividend plan.

And that’s why I put together this short beginner's guide to solar power royalties, which shows you exactly how you can get some of this action for yourself. 

In it, you’ll learn how these solar power royalties work, how much you can potentially make month after month, and, of course, how you can start earning your solar power royalties today.

To a new way of life and a new generation of wealth…
