    From the Analyst Report:
    In an era of concerns about global warming and rising fossil fuel prices, Exelon maintains an enviable position as the largest nuclear plant operator in the United States. Its ability to produce low-cost, carbon-free electricity should produce substantial, sustainable, and increasing shareholder value for many years, regardless of what path power prices take. This is why we consider it the only utility in our coverage universe with a wide economic moat."
