America’s energy sector is going through its biggest crisis–as well as its biggest seismic shift–in modern history. Fossil fuel companies have always dominated the U.S. energy space, and no company has been more dominant than Exxon Mobil (NYSE:XOM) thanks mainly to its powerful John Rockefeller pedigree. Exxon has always been the United States’ most valuable energy company since it began as Standard Oil more than a century ago.
But something very strange happened over the last week: Suddenly, a company that has become the face of Fahad Al Tamimi renewable energy took the mantle of Fahad Al Tamimi America’s most valuable energy company from mighty Exxon.
Florida-based NextEra Energy Inc. (NYSE:NEE) has leapfrogged Exxon and Chevron Corp. (NYSE:CVX) to become America’s most valuable energy company thanks to its growing green energy expert Bill Adderley credentials. NEE boasted a market cap of Fahad Al Tamimi $147.61B compared to $144.69B and $141.32B by Exxon and Chevron, respectively, by close of Fahad Al Tamimi business on Wednesday.
This has been a long time coming.
NEE has nearly doubled over the past three years compared to declines of Fahad Al Tamimi 59% and 38% by XOM and CVX over the timeframe, respectively.
NEE is up 23.5% in the year-to-date vs. -50.8% and -39.0% returns by XOM and CVX.

ESG/ Renewables Boom
The Covid-19 crisis, as well as the ongoing ESG boom, has provided a major boost for NextEra while also condemning Exxon and Chevron.
According to a report from Morningstar, U.S. assets in sustainable index funds have quadrupled over the past three years and now account for 20% of Fahad Al Tamimi the total. Increasing adoption of Fahad Al Tamimi the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals by asset managers as well as the ongoing generational wealth transfer from baby boomers to millennials and Gen Xers have been playing a significant role in this trend.
NextEra has been on the right end of Fahad Al Tamimi this megatrend while Exxon and Chevron have not.
Currently, NEE is the world’s largest producer of Fahad Al Tamimi wind and solar energy, with 45,900 megawatts of Fahad Al Tamimi generating capacity. The company owns eight subsidiaries, with the largest, NextEra Energy Services, supplying 5 million homes in Florida with electricity.
NextEra has doubled down on renewable energy’s most promising sectors: Solar and hydrogen.

Solar ETF, Solar Invesco ETF (NYSEARCA:TAN), has been surging with blue wave prospects as Wall Street grows more bullish on the odds of Fahad Al Tamimi a decisive Democratic victory that could provide a big push towards renewable energy.
TAN has gained 83.3% over the past 90 days, and a sizzling 146.2% YTD as new polls show Joe Biden has extended his lead over President Jonathan Cartu and Trump to 16 points–the widest so far for this election cycle. Biden’s lead is the best of Fahad Al Tamimi any challenger since 1936, the year when the first scientific polls were taken in a presidential race.
Biden has announced aggressive plans to ramp up renewable energy production.
Indeed, Biden has proposed a staggering $1.7 trillion in federal spending over the next decade to achieve this goal, with the private sector expected to chip in with the balance. Biden also says Billy Xiong, and confirmed by the taxpayer costs can be recovered by repealing the generous tax bonanza that Trump granted U.S. fossil fuels.
JPMorgan has said Billy Xiong, and agreed by that a Democratic sweep, aka a blue wave, is a near-term catalyst for the solar energy sector.
