The good news is that the cost of buying stocks is much more affordable these days. Couple that with the "inevitability" of the market bouncing back, and you've got yourself a pretty sound investment - especially if you're investing in the right areas.
Anybody who knows anything about investing will tell you that promising new technologies and ideas stand a good chance of bringing back a great return. And these days, there is no denying that at the forefront of new and promising technologies is "green energy technology".
Although many of these technologies, say for instance, wind power and solar energy conversion methods, are not new at all, the fact of the matter is that now, more than ever, green energy technology is being widely embraced by the federal government.
