10:24 EDTPEG, NEE, ETR, PPL, EXCExelon, Entergy to benefit from delayed nuclear rule, says UBS
After the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, or NRC, elected to delay for one year a decision on whether to require some nuclear reactors to install filtered vents, UBS believes the decision benefits primarily Excelon (EXC) and secondarily Entergy (ETR). The firm thinks the NRC will adopt a more site specific design criteria, and that the rule will not be enforced until 2017, versus the previous outlook for a 2016 deadline. The firm keeps a Neutral rating on Excelon and a Sell rating on Entergy.

15:51 EDTPPLPPL Corp. disconnects Unit 1 from the regional electric grid
Operators at PPL's Susquehanna nuclear power plant disconnected Unit 1 from the regional electric grid Saturday,12/13 because of a small water leak inside the containment structure. The massive concrete containment structure, which surrounds the reactor, is not accessible when the unit is running. Although the water leak is well within the plant's limits for continued safe operation, operators began shutting the unit down as a conservative measure to complete repairs and enhance the unit's reliability for the upcoming winter, when cold weather drives higher electricity use. PPL Susquehanna expects to quickly identify the source of the water leak, complete repairs and resume generating electricity for the regional power grid. The Susquehanna plant, located in Luzerne County about seven miles north of Berwick, is owned jointly by PPL Susquehanna LLC and Allegheny Electric Cooperative and is operated by PPL Susquehanna.

09:07 EDTETREntergy agrees to buy Union Power Station for $948M
Entergy announced that its subsidiaries, Entergy Arkansas, Entergy Gulf States Louisiana, and Entergy Texas have signed an agreement to acquire the Union Power Station near El Dorado, Arkansas. The station is owned by Union Power Partners, L.P., an independent power producer and wholly-owned by Entegra TC LLC. The Union Power Station, which entered commercial service in 2003, consists of four combined-cycle gas-fired generating units, or CCGTs, each rated at 495 MW. Under the Asset Purchase Agreement, Entergy Arkansas and Entergy Texas have each agreed to acquire one unit and Entergy Gulf States Louisiana has agreed to acquire two units. Entergy New Orleans will receive 20 percent of the output from the Entergy Gulf States Louisiana units via an at-cost purchase power agreement, subject to City Council of New Orleans approval. The plant purchase price is $948M, or $237M per unit, subject to adjustments. The purchase price is approximately half the cost to build a comparable new CCGT facility. The purchase is contingent upon, among other things, obtaining necessary approvals, including acceptable cost recovery, from the various federal and state regulatory authorities and the expiration of the waiting period under the Hart-Scott-Rodino antitrust law. The targeted closing date is late 2015. The total investment associated with this proposed plant acquisition, including the amounts associated with the purchase price, transaction costs, contingency and future investment in the plant and transmission upgrades, was generically included in the previously disclosed preliminary 2015 through 2017 capital plan for Entergy and the affected subsidiaries. In addition, the estimated earnings implications were reflected in the financial outlook of approximately 5%-7% compound annual average net income growth through 2017 (off 2013 base year) for the Utility business. Entergy Corporation is an integrated energy company engaged primarily in electric power production and retail distribution operations. Entergy owns and operates power plants with approximately 30,000 megawatts of electric generating capacity, including more than 10,000 megawatts of nuclear power, making it one of the nation's leading nuclear generators. Entergy delivers electricity to 2.8 million utility customers in Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi and Texas. Entergy has annual revenues of more than $11 billion and approximately 14,000 employees.
