The EPA’s new rules meant to curb power plant pollution could result in dozens of plants shutting down, but Barclays says some companies may benefit. GE could see higher demand as companies look to add new plants with gas turbines; since GE Power may be GE’s most important business, the stock could enjoy a boost. Other potential beneficiaries: SPW, CBE, TNB, HUBB, WCC.

    With natural gas being as cheap as it now and supposedly cleaner burning, gas turbine power plants seem logical.

    A bunch of whiners.

     

    Don't you guys want government to do more to use the dirt cheap natural gas a few days ago? Making coal expensive and forcing utilities to wean it off is the quickest way to promote NG.

    And every one of those companies - especially GE - busy in bed with the government to get this crap enacted. And Obama's re-election war chest just gets bigger and bigger.
