NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Jul 6, 2011) - Alternative Energy stocks have been volatile of late.

Earlier this year Italy approved a decree that cuts spending on generous solar power incentives. Under the new solar decree, a transitional period with gradual cuts in incentives will start from June 1, 2011 and run to 2013, after which the incentives will automatically be linked to reaching a certain level of installed capacity.

Alternative energy in the US remains positioned for growth, however, as the Obama Administration has made it clear that green technologies such as wind and solar power will create the American jobs of the future.
