Some solar stocks are on the move Thursday thanks to a few different catalysts worth looking into.

First off, we have expectations for increased spending on solar energy projects. That’s due to moves from the White House focusing on solar power as a major contributor to future green energy.

Chief among those moves is the Inflation Reduction Act. While solar isn’t mentioned in the name of this new law, it includes several bits of legislation focused on shifting the U.S. toward green energy.

Adding to that, analysts are already weighing in on the benefits the Inflation Reduction Act will have for solar stocks. That has Goldman Sachs analyst Brian Lee upgrading shares of First Solar (NASDAQ:FSLR) and Maxeon (NASDAQ:MAXN) today.

Let’s get into how this news is affecting solar stocks below!
