With a new $370 billion clean energy and climate deal, keep an eye on green stocks. Analysis “suggests the measures would reduce US carbon emissions by up to 40% by 2030. Strong climate regulations from the Biden administration and action from states would be needed to get to Biden’s goal of cutting emissions 50% by 2030,” says CNN. “The bill also contains many tax incentives meant to bring down the cost of electricity with more renewables, and spur more American consumers to switch to electricity to power their homes and vehicles.” That could also be beneficial for companies, such as Northstar Clean Technologies (TSXV: ROOF) (OTCQB: ROOOF), which is focused on the sustainable recovery and reprocessing of asphalt shingles. Other shingles stocks to be aware of in the market include Owens Corning (NYSE: OC), Builders FirstSource Inc. (NYSE: BLDR), Beacon Roofing Supply Inc. (NASDAQ: BECN), and Home Depot Inc. (NYSE: HD).
