05:40 EDTFSLRBarclays rolls out solar coverage, names First Solar Top Pick
Barclays analyst Jon Windham initiated coverage of the U.S. Alternative Energy industry with a Neutral rating citing the pullback in energy prices and risk to demand from emerging markets given the step-down of the U.S. investment tax credit at the end of 2016. Windham, however, expects alternative energy demand to "remain robust" over the longer term. He started shares of First Solar (FSLR) with an Overweight rating and $71 price target. The stock closed yesterday at $47.84. The solar company's "strong" $15 per share of net cash will internally fund its international growth, Windham tells investors in a research note. He named First Solar his Top Pick in the space. The analyst rounded out his coverage in the space with Equal Weight ratings on SunPower (SPWR) and 8point3 Energy (CAFD).

11:09 EDTFSLRGoldman says SolarCity attractive after sharp pullback
SolarCity (SCTY) shares are climbing in the down market after Goldman Sachs contended in a note to investors today that the stock is attractive following its recent sharp retreat, The company probably won't be affected by issues that are causing investors to worry about the solar sector, the firm believes. WHAT'S NEW: Noting that SolarCity's stock had tumbled 27% in the last month before today's open, Goldman Sachs analyst Brian Lee wrote that the shares are being dragged down by worries about financing and cost of capital that are affecting the entire solar sector. However, he contended that these issues are having only a "limited" impact on SolarCity. On August 13, the company successfully sold asset-backed securities and it said that more such sales are likely to occur in the near-term, Lee noted. Meanwhile, SolarCity isn't being affected by the cost of capital increases that other solar companies are experiencing, the analyst reported. Before today's open, the stock was near a two year low, even though SolarCity's fundamentals are still "strong," Lee believes. Additionally, the largest U.S. solar trade show, which is expected to begin on September 14, could boost solar stocks, as it has historically been a catalyst for the sector, the analyst stated. SolarCity may provide guidance about the outlook for its Silevo solar panel manufacturing subsidiary in the second half of 2015, and the guidance could boost the stock, Lee believes. The risk/reward ratio of SolarCity's stock is positive, according to the analyst, who has a Conviction List Buy and $85 price target on the shares. OTHERS TO WATCH: Other publicly traded companies in the solar space include Canadian Solar (CSIQ), First Solar (FSLR), JA Solar (JASO), SunEdison (SUNE), SunPower (SPWR), Trina Solar (TSL) and Yingli Green Energy (YGE). PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, SolarCity advanced 5.3% to $43.18.

08:01 EDTGEGE to provide CESP with 30MW battery energy storage system
GE announced it will provide Coachella Energy Storage Partners with a 30-MW battery energy storage system as part of CESP's supply contract with the Imperial Irrigation District. Representing GE's largest energy storage project to date, the plant will be located in California's Imperial Valley, approximately 100 miles east of San Diego. The facility will aid grid flexibility and increase reliability on the IID network by providing solar ramping, frequency regulation, power balancing and black start capability for an adjacent gas turbine. GE will provide CESP with an integrated energy storage solution, configured using GE's Mark* VI plant controls, GE Brilliance MW inverters, GE Prolec transformers, medium-voltage switchgear and advanced lithium ion batteries housed in a GE purpose-built enclosure. The plant will be operated by ZGlobal, an engineering collaborator with CESP, for the first 18 months, after which control will transfer to the IID. The deal marks GE's third project using lithium ion battery technology since expanding its portfolio in recent months. GE anticipates project construction will begin early next year, with commercial operation scheduled for the third quarter of 2016.
