    Duke Energy reaches deal to close remaining coal ash basins in North Carolina

    Duke Energy Corp. announced Thursday an agreement with North Carolina state regulators and community groups to permanently close all of electric company's remaining nine coal ash basins in the state. Under the agreed upon plan, Duke said about 80 million tons of ash will be excavated from the sites, and be moved to lined landfills. "The agreement calls for expedited state permit approvals which would keep projects on a rapid timeline with excavation at the six sites completed in 10 to 15 years," Duke said in a statement. The plan will reduce the estimated cost to close the nine coal ash basins by about $1.5 billion, as compared with the previous order from North Carolina's Department of Environmental Quality requiring full excavation. As a result, the cost to permanently close all ash basins in the Carolinas is now estimated at $8 billion to $9 billion, of which about $2.4 billion has been spent through 2019, with the rest expected to be spend over the next 15 to 20 years. Duke's stock, which slipped 0.1% in premarket trading, has gained 7.7% over the past 12 months, while the SPDR Utilities Select Sector ETF has rallied 24% and the S&P 500 has advanced 29%.

    PG&E's stock rockets after Bloomberg report that a deal to pay $13.5 billion wildfire victims is in the works

    Shares of PG&E Corp. rocketed 21% in active afternoon trading Wednesday, enough to pace all NYSE-listed gainers, after Bloomberg reported the California-based utility was near a deal to pay out $13.5 billion to wildfire victims. Trading volume jumped to over 38.5 million shares, compared with the full-day average of 24.9 million shares. The Bloomberg report, which cited people familiar with the matter, said half of the payout would be in cash, upfront in a lump sum, and the other half would be in stock, to be paid over 18 months. A settlement would help resolve the utility's bankruptcy. Despite the rally, the stock has still lost 57% year to date, while the SPDR Utilities Select Sector ETF has gained 20% and the S&P 500 has advanced 24%.

    PG&E to cut power to 150,000 customer for fire risk

    Shares of PG&E Corp. sank 3.2% in premarket trading Wednesday, after the San Francisco-based utility company said it will begin shutting off power to about 150,000 customers in 18 counties in an effort to reduce fire risk. The shutoffs will be in portions of the Sierra Foothills, the North Bay and the North Valley, and are scheduled to begin as early as 6:00 a.m. local time on Wednesday. "The decision was based on weather forecasts indicating the potential for high winds and dry conditions leading to increased fire risk," PG&E said in a statement. The company said the expectation is that the weather will clear around mid-morning on Thursday. The stock has tumbled 71.2% year to date through Tuesday, while the SPDR Utilities Select Sector ETF has rallied 18.7% and the S&P 500 has gained 24.5%.
