New York City, New York -- (June 04, 2013)
The utilities sector in the U.S. is expected to face significant challenges over the next few years. Utilities are under pressure to meet new environmental regulation. Meanwhile, utilities are also expected to see a sharp rise in capital spending over the next few years as they upgrade their existing infrastructure. However, electric utilities have been benefiting from cheaper natural gas. The shale boom in the U.S. pushed natural gas prices to record low levels last year, prompting several electric utilities to switch from coal to natural gas to generate power. With natural gas prices expected to remain low, electric utilities are expected to continue to benefit from the trend. On Monday, June 3, 2013, utilities sector ended mostly higher, tracking gains in the broader market which grew even as investors digested some disappointing economic data. The major movers in the sector included PPL Corporation (NYSE: PPL), Xcel Energy Inc. (NYSE: XEL), PG&E Corporation (NYSE: PCG), and Pepco Holdings Inc. (NYSE: POM).
