When President Barrack Obama touted a shift to clean energy as a means to create jobs, a national shift of emphasis took place. While Congress failed in its first attempts, a bill is currently being introduced that could change the landscape of the Electric Utility Sector. If passed, the bill would place a federal requirement on the percentage of clean energy produced by Electric companies. While the exact figures of the bill are unknown, it is expected to be similar to previous attempts which required companies to produce 15% of their energy from renewable sources by 2021. There is some debate about the bill as it is considered unfair for Midwest and Southern states that have less access to wind energy. There is also current debate about whether nuclear power will count in the totals. is an online platform where investors doing their due-diligence on the electric utilities industry can have easy and free access to our analyst research and opinions on Dynegy Inc. and NRG Energy Inc.; all investors need to do is register for a complimentary membership at

It is anticipated that gas-based new energy capacity will grow to 82% in 2013 from 42% last year. Register now at to have free access to our reports on the electric utilities industry.
