Major shares in the solar sector rose in response to the continued crisis in Japan. With nuclear energy in full view it could now be reconsidered for a number of locations. Amongst a see of red and falling shares, solar shares appeared to soar with some such as First Solar pulling in impressive gains of up to 8% in one day.
Solar, whilst we think its brilliant is not the panacea for all our energy ills and nuclear probably has its part to play in the energy offering.
I hope the situation in Japan resolves itself and soon the Japanese can get on with resuming their lives free from the radiological fears!
