The shares of Sunrun Inc (NASDAQ:RUN)Enphase Energy Inc (NYSE:ENPH), and First Solar, Inc. (NASDAQ:FSLR) are all sporting solid gains this morning, after Democratic Senator Joe Manchin and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer unveiled a new $369 billion bill to battle climate change. Manchin, who holds a key swing vote in the Senate, previously withheld support for climate provisions, but agreed to the "Inflation Reduction Act of 2022," which includes a number of clean energy incentives.

At last check, Sunrun stock is up 32.9% to trade at $31.61. The equity has had a rocky year so far, falling to a May 12, two-year low of $16.80, with a subsequent rally rejected at the $31 level. Today's positive price action has RUN on track to close above the $30 level for the first time since April, though. Year-to-date, the security is still down 30.6%.

Meanwhile, ENPH boasts a more conservative 9.7% lead, seen trading at a fresh annual high of $279.44. The 100-day moving average has been supporting the equity since May, and longer term Enphase Energy stock sports an impressive 40.4% year-over-year lead.

Lastly, First Solar stock is up 16.3% at $89.26 at last glance, after earlier surging to its highest level since December while blasting through the 200-day moving average. Should this positive price action hold, FSLR could move comfortably above both its year-over-year and year-to-date breakeven levels.
