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.

15:22 EDTPPLPPL Corp. sale of hydroelectric facilities approved by Montana PSC
PPL Montanaís agreement to sell its hydroelectric facilities to NorthWestern Energy has received final approval from the Montana Public Service Commission, the company announced. The commission issued a final order Friday, Sept. 26, approving the transaction, which includes PPL Montanaís 11 hydroelectric power plants and Hebgen Lake reservoir. The PSC action follows prior approvals from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, as well as the necessary clearance from the antitrust enforcement agencies. Before the transaction can close, NorthWestern must file with FERC and obtain approval of certain financing transactions. FERC review of that filing is expected to take 30-60 days. The purchase price for the hydroelectric generating facilities is $900M in cash, subject to certain adjustments. PPL Corporation estimates its total net cash proceeds of the sale will be approximately $880M.
