I mentioned SunEdison and SunPower as major players already and First Solar (NASDAQ: FSLR ) is in the mix as well. It has a 141 megawatt plant in Chile and a growing pipeline in the region. For now, SunEdison is the market leader and it could use the region as a hub for an emerging markets yieldco it has planned.

The promise of an easy Fed sure has investors excited. The Dow Jones Industrial Average gained 421.28 points, or 2.4%, to 17.778.15 today, while the S&P 500 rose 2.4% to 4,748.40. Every stock in the Dow finished up today, with Microsoft (MSFT) and International Business Machines (IBM) and Goldman Sachs (GS) leading the way. Perhaps more frightening: By my count, just 21 S&P 500 stocks finished i! n the red today, as Oracle (ORCL) and First Solar (FSLR) led the benchmark higher.
