    • Electricity producers are largely planning to comply with, not contest, the Obama administration’s new rule limiting carbon emissions from power plants, believing the new regulations at least add certainty to their plans to move away from coal to generate electricity toward cheap natural gas and renewable energy, WSJ reports.
    • "Everybody is moving in this direction anyway,” Dominion (NYSE:D) CEO Tom Farrell says.
    • "Our coal assets are still running but they’re not making any money," says CEO Bob Flexon of Dynegy (NYSE:DYN), whose generating capacity is ~45% coal and 55% gas. “All the earnings are coming from our gas portfolio."
    • Certainly not every utility has agreed to go along with the EPA’s 15-year plan to cut carbon dioxide emissions from the power industry by 32% from 2005; among those who say they are still studying the rule and deciding on next steps are DUK, AEP and SO.

    • The pipeline - owned by Dominion (NYSE:D) 45%, Duke Energy (NYSE:DUK) 40%, Piedmont Natural Gas (NYSE:PNY) 10%, and AGL Resources (NYSE:GAS) 5% - could begin construction in H2 2016, pending regulatory approvals, for a Q4 2018 in-service date.

    • SunEdison (NYSE:SUNE+5.9% premarket after announcing a strategic partnership with J.P. Morgan's infrastructure investment group to fund renewable energy projects in both operating and construction stages, an initial investment of which will be a 33% interest, valued at $300M, in a 425 MW portfolio of domestic solar assets owned by Dominion (NYSE:D).
    • SUNE has an option to acquire the remaining stake in the portfolio, which includes 24 projects in California, Connecticut, Georgia, Indiana, Tennessee and Utah; 15 of the projects entered service in 2013 and 2014, and the remaining projects either have been completed or have expected in-service dates in 2015.

    • Coal stocks (KOL +0.3%) are rallying after the Supreme Court threw out the EPA’s first-ever rules requiring coal-fired power plants to cut emissions of mercury and other toxic air pollutants, saying the agency should have weighed the cost of compliance in deciding whether to regulate.
    • The ruling means the EPA must go back to the drawing board, which possibly could push any new emissions rules past Pres. Obama’s time in office.
    • Coal companies are enjoying hefty gains: WLT +28.2%, ACI +15.1%, BTU +11.2%, ANR +5.4%, CLD +5.2%, RNO +3.9%, WLB +1.9%, CNX +1.4%.
    • Select utility names also are seeing some strength: AEP +1%, PCG +0.9%, D +0.6%, NEE +0.6%, EXC +0.3%.

    • PJM Interconnection, the largest U.S. electricity grid, wins approval from U.S. regulators for a plan to increase reliability at power plants and avoid a repeat of the shutdowns and price spikes during the unseasonably cold winter of 2014.
    • Under the plan, which takes effect in 2018 after a capacity auction this year, generators that promise to be available during peak demand periods will receive higher payouts than other plants and will be penalized for failing to meet the commitments; the auction, planned for May, was delayed after FERC declined PJM’s initial proposal and asked for more information.
    • The largest generators in PJM are trading higher at the open: NRG +4.2%, AEP +1.4%, EXC +3.1%, PEG +1.1%, DYN +7.2%.
    • Also: TLN +4%, NEE +1.2%, PCG +0.7%, EE +1.5%, SO +0.5%, D +0.2%, DUK +0.9%, XLU +0.9%.
