07:27 EDTDUK, AEP, D, SO, EXC, PCG, EIXUtilities coping with new environment as electricity sales sputter, WSJ says
Electricity sales are looking anemic for the seventh year in a row and utility companies have had to abandon the assumption that electricity use tracks overall economic conditions, as the effects of regulations and technological changes have made it easier for Americans to cut down their power consumption, said The Wall Street Journal. However, this change has created a new environment for the capital-intensive utilities, which typically need to expand sales volume by 1% or more a year just to maintain their networks. Publicly traded electric utilities include American Electric (AEP), Duke Energy (DUK), Dominion (D), Southern Company (SO), Exelon (EXC), PG&E (PCG), and Edison International (EIX). Reference Link
