Just last week, one of those Fools, rcochcran1970, succinctly summed up the Ameresco bull case for our community:

Positive on energy right now with the mess in the Middle East, Africa, and South America. We need to develop our own resources in N. America, but we also need to do that more efficiently. AMRC is well positioned to take advantage of present and future global instability, and the price couldn't be better for a large company with plenty of cash and work waiting for them.

If you want market-thumping returns, you need to put together the best portfolio you can. Of course, despite a perfect five-star rating, Ameresco may not be your top choice.
