  • Diversified solar index including all solar technologies (crystalline and thin-film photovoltaic solar and solar thermal), the entire value chain (raw materials, manufacturing, installers, solar plant operations, financing, etc), and related solar equipment such as power inverters, encapsulates, etc.
  • Liquidity minimums for initial inclusion in the index include at least $150 million market cap and $750,000 in 1-month average daily trading value.
