LONDON, March 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

A sharp decline in natural gas prices in 2012 resulted in several electric
utilities to switch from coal and natural gas. With natural gas prices
expected to remain low in 2013, the trend is expected to continue in 2013.
Meanwhile, electric utilities such as Edison International (NYSE: EIX),
Calpine Corporation (NYSE: CPN), The Southern Company (NYSE: SO) and
Consolidated Edison Inc. (NYSE: ED) will be hoping for a normal winter this
year. An unusually warm winter had a negative impact on electric utilities
last year. Finally, electric utilities are also adapting to new environmental
regulations. On Thursday, electric utilities ended mostly lower even as the
broad market ended higher. StockCall has posted free technical research on
