The Solar theme is back on track, due to higher energy prices, the upcoming COP26 and rumors that the Biden infrastructure plan will include $500 Bn for Renewables energies/infrastructures. But strong corporate results and prospects from players including Enphase led the solar energy theme higher as companies are now more mature and in accelerating growth mode.

This signal looks consistent with the bullish reversal in process for Tech Renewables, while Utilities Renewables are already back in major uptrend in the US.
