    Texas power prices dive from record high as consumers conserve energy during heat wave

    Spot power prices in Texas for Friday crashed from a record high as consumers responded to requests from the state's grid operator to turn down their air conditioners and take other steps to save energy during a brutal heat wave.

The Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT) called on Texans to conserve energy on Thursday and Friday by limiting the use of large appliances and turning the thermostat on their air conditioners up a few degrees.

    11 Utility Stocks and Funds to Buy for Safety and Income

    Utility stocks and funds are in a fortuitous position right now. Investors tend to seek them out when recession fears creep (like they are right now), and they also tend to perform well when interest rates decline.Several countries have shown signs of economic weakness, sparking worries about a global recession. The U.S.-Chinese trade war hasn't helped, blunting the growth of the planet's two largest economies. And Derek Horstmeyer, an assistant finance professor at George Mason University, points out what many experts have said about the yield curve's recent inversion. Namely, he calls it a "strong signal that we are in the late stages of economic expansion and may indeed be headed for a recession within the next 18 months." That's a boon to safe-haven sectors such as utilities and consumer staples, as what they produce is always in demand, no matter what the economy is doing. Utility stocks, with their high returns on assets and high dividends, should be considered given that they "tend to do well in late-cycle periods," Horstmeyer says.The utility sector also is attractive as interest rates fall, says Robert Johnson, a finance professor at Creighton University. "The dividend yield on the utility sector is especially attractive in this abnormally low-interest-rate environment as the yields on utility stocks exceed the yields on long-term U.S. government debt by a substantial margin," he says.Here are 11 utility stocks and fund to buy for safety and income. This list includes a few standouts in the sector, as well as several ways to diversify your risk while collecting these stocks' above-average dividends.

    Texas power prices nearly triple to record high as heat bakes state

    Spot power prices in Texas almost tripled to a record high for Friday as the state's grid operator took emergency measures for a second time this week to keep the lights on as consumers cranked up their air conditioners to escape a heat wave.

Next-day power prices at the ERCOT North hub soared from $265 per megawatt hour (MWh) for Thursday to $751 for Friday, their highest on record, according to Refinitiv data going back to 2010.
