    • The utility group as a whole has not been performing well lately. Maybe a merger announcement would jump start the group.

    • Wind and solar are the problem. Wind and solar never pay for themselves before the equipment/panels wear out or become obsolete. States won't let EXC pass along all the costs to recover expense.

      Coal and natural gas are dirt cheap compared to wind and solar. The infrastructure for coal and natural gas is already there.

      So if you want EXC to move up then suggest to management that they quit throwing shareholder money away and ivest in cheap energy supplies like coal and natural gas.

      America can't have it both ways, either America uses what is reasonable to produce energy, or America goes broke wasting money on alternate energies that will never pay for themselves.

      Do you want energy? Or do you want to live in a cave like the environmentalists would like you to do?

      Sheeple continue to get fleeced by the environmentalists in America while the rest of the world laughs at us.

      • Icy,

        How much solar does EXC own?

        Do you understand that utilities are mandated to have a certain % of wind/solar generation?

        I agree that wind and solar are NOT practical generation solutions. The only reason they work is that pricing is guaranteed thru subsidies. Take those away and wind and solar make no sense.

        Sure, we have plenty of coal, and if you can scrub it so it's as clean as nuclear or even NG then maybe it's a viable solution. But you and I both know that's not going to happen. The sooner we drastically reduce coal generation the better.

        And NG could work too if only they didn't inject some much toxic material (and precious water - especially where you live) into the earth and our aquifers in the extraction process.

        It's not all about the money dude - but you don't sound like you care.
