06:43 EDTAPA, ACI, CLD, ANRNatural gas, renewable energy to benefit from EPA rule, NY Times says
The carbon reduction rules proposed by the EPA yesterday will boost natural gas and renewable sources of energy, according to The New York Times. Natural gas prices could rise as much as 25%, said Chris Faulkner, the CEO of Breitling Energy (BECC), and renewable energy providers may have an easier time securing financing for projects, the newspaper stated. Meanwhile, most utilities should be able to meet the requirements in the rule "without undue stress," while an executive of coal miner Cloud Peak Energy (CLD) predicted that there would still be significant demand for coal, the newspaper reported. Publicly traded coal companies include Alliance Resource Partners (ARLP), Alpha Natural (ANR), Arch Coal (ACI), CONSOL (CNX), Cloud Peak (CLD), Peabody (BTU) and Walter Energy (WLT). Publicly traded solar energy companies include Canadian Solar (CSIQ), First Solar (FSLR), JA Solar (JASO), SunPower (SPWR), Trina Solar (TSL) and Yingli Green Energy (YGE). Publicly traded electric utilities include Dominion (D), NextEra Energy (NEE), and Exelon (EXC). Natural gas producers include Southwestern Energy (SWN), Chesapeake Energy (CHK), Cabot Oil & Gas (COG), and Apache (APA). Reference Link

16:17 EDTANRAlpha Natural subsidiaries plan to reduce W. Virginia mining operations
Two operating affiliates of Alpha Natural Resources have notified their employees that certain West Virginia coal mines are being idled due to sustained weak market conditions and federal government regulations that have challenged the entire Central Appalachian mining industry. In accordance with the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act, notice has been given to approximately 91 Highland Mining Company employees, advising them of the expected idling of Highland Mining's Superior, North, and Trace Fork surface mines, and a reduction in workforce at its Reylas and Freeze Fork surface mines. The affected mines are located in Logan and Mingo Counties, West Virginia. In addition, seven workers with Rum Creek Coal's Anna Branch reclamation unit, working at the affected mines, will also be displaced. Approximately 25% of the affected workers will continue to perform reclamation work as three of the operations wind down to an idle state. The mine idlings and workforce reduction are expected to be completed by mid-April. These actions are being triggered by persistent weakness in U.S. and overseas coal demand and depressed price levels, along with regulatory pressures contributing to the premature retirement of coal-fired power plants across the nation. Excess supply of coal worldwide also has contributed to falling coal prices. The mines that are being idled produced 1.5M tons of thermal coal in FY14.
