Image source: Getty Images I think green energy is the future. But I’m also conscious it’ll be challenging to pick winners in the sector over the next few years. Over the next decade, hundreds of billions of pounds are set to flow into the renewable energy sector. What’s more, a tidal wave of new companies seeking to capitalise on this trend has hit the market during the past year. However, most of these businesses are currently unprofitable. In addition, some are developing technology that’s, as yet, unproven. 5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…These companies are incredibly speculative, which is why I plan to avoid most of them. Instead, I want to focus my efforts on already-established companies that have plans in place to grow their green energy production over the next few years. Green energy championOne FTSE 100 company is planning to invest more than almost any other UK business over the next nine years in green energy. That’s utility group SSE (LSE: SSE). The group is currently in the middle of a transition. It’s looking to invest £7.5bn by 2030 to triple its renewable energy output. The funding for these projects will come from the sale of non-core assets.For example, SSE recently inked the sale of two energy-to-waste projects, which raised £995m in cash. It’s also progressing with a plan to sell its entire stake in Scotia Gas Networks, which distributes gas to homes and businesses.On top of these disposals, SSE has sold a 25% stake in the Walney offshore wind farm and a one-third stake in meter asset provider MapleCo.And while one team at the company has been selling assets, another has been redeploying the capital. SSE and its partner Coillte Renewable Energy recently began construction of their joint 30MW Lenalea wind project in central Donegal.The company is also pushing ahead with the development of its Dogger Bank C Project, one of the most significant wind farm projects in the UK, jointly owned and operated by SSE and Equinor. SSE also owns 40% of the Dogger Bank A and B projects. Finally, this month, SSE announce it plans to build Scotland’s first power station using carbon capture technology. All of these projects should help the company achieve its green energy ambitions. Income and risksOne of the reasons why I like SSE over any other green energy stock is the fact the firm’s an already established business.It has the capital to pursue renewable energy projects and is generating enough profit to pay shareholders for owning the stock. At the time of writing, shares in the company offer a dividend yield of 5.2%. Unfortunately, I don’t think this dividend is here to stay. The company has said it’ll try to maintain the payout, but if SSE’s capital spending obligations continue to expand, it may cut the distribution. Another challenge the group faces is debt. SSE’s debt-to-equity ratio is nearly 200%. That’s relatively high. Such an elevated level of borrowings could weigh on the company’s growth. Still, despite these risks, I think this remains one of the best green energy stocks to buy. That’s why I’d invest £5,000 in the business today.  I would like to receive emails from you about product information and offers from The Fool and its business partners.

Students at John Muir High School Stage Walkout Over Durags and Dress Code

In the past men used to perm their hair and now you have black men wearing short hair with waves.”The walkout stemmed from the students’ desire to wear durags in school. Head coverings are not allowed to be worn in school as per the district-wide dress code that bans the use of hats and head coverings. In addition, the display of certain clothing styles and certain colors could represent gang affiliation and the district, like all school districts, has a duty to protect its students.“While these are important conversations, the best place for students to discuss concerns is in school, with teachers and staff,” said Principal Lawton Gray. “We are providing classroom and campus dialogue to provide secure forums where all opinions are respected in both words and actions.“Currently, our school dress code does not allow for durags for head coverings. Our dress code is developed in cooperation with with teachers, students and parents/guardians and are consistent with the law, Board policy, and the values of the John Muir community.”The walkout was peaceful and the students returned to class within the hour. During the staged walkout the students chanted “I am not dangerous,” according to witnesses. Many had their hands in the air, but it was a peaceful — and relatively short — expression of disagreement with the ban.The JMHS Black Student Union began planning the walkout following a lunch meeting last Friday with Gray over the matter. Upholding district rules, Gray told the students he believes there is no middle ground on the subject, according to the students.Historically and anecdotally, durags have come to represent gang activity. The students say that is an old stereotype and it’s time for a change.The walkout was designed to coincide with fourth period, at which time the kids would be marked absent if not in their respective classrooms.The students argue that durags, also known as “wave caps” keep the hair flat, allowing men to wear their hair in natural style when removed. And Myles said the durag has also been embraced as part of modern clothing wear.“Designers like Louis Vuitton and Gucci, they make durags as a fashion statement,” he said. “We disagree with the ‘criminalizing’ of black men, as black men are the ones who wear durags.”Michelle Bailey of Pasadena School Board’s third district weighed in.“The conversation has to go deeper,” Bailey said. “When I think about being at school I think about preparing for higher education. When you look at pictures of people who are successful in their business, they’re not wearing durags.”Bailey also said the conversation about durags is valid but it might have a better platform outside of school.“Because the students are tying it to culture it’s a legitimate discussion that maybe should be had at the community level. ”Gray said this subject needs further examination.“Conversations with students will be ongoing,” he said. “Our school welcomes, values and supports all students and their families and remains committed to preparing graduates who are civically engaged, resilient and productive citizens of the 21st century.“For their own safety and to follow the law, students should limit their activities to times that don’t interfere with their learning, and they should remain in class,” Gray said. The safety and well-being of students is our top priority.” First Heatwave Expected Next Week Subscribe Pasadena’s ‘626 Day’ Aims to Celebrate City, Boost Local Economy Top of the News Business News HerbeautyInstall These Measures To Keep Your Household Safe From Covid19HerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeauty’First Daughters’: From Cute Little Kids To Beautiful Young WomenHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeauty9 Of The Best Family Friendly Dog BreedsHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyTiger Woods Is ‘Different Man’ 10 Years After ScandalHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyThese Fashion Tips Are Making Tall Girls The Talk Of The TownHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyWant To Seriously Cut On Sugar?
