15:03 EDTEXCPJM-linked energy generators crash after Supreme Court upholds 'demand response'
Shares of Dynegy (DYN) and select peers are trading lower after the Supreme Court ruled in favor of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission and its so-called demand response, an industry practice that seeks to encourage lower energy usage. The rule, which pays customers for not using power, effectively boosts supply and increases pressure on prices in the PJM power grid, the nation's biggest merchant power market. Dynegy, Talen (TLN), Exelon (EXC) and FirstEnergy (FE) are the largest merchant generators in PJM, according to Bloomberg data. PRICE ACTION: Dynegy has fallen roughly 11.2% to $9.92. Exelon, NRG Energy (NRG), Talen and Calpine (CPN) have slipped 2.8%, 7.8%, 5.2%, and 7.7%, respectively, while energy savings firm EnerNOC (ENOC) jumped nearly 78% in the wake of the ruling.
