Pre-Market Analysis on Analysis on Edison Intl., Calpine, Southern, and Consolidated Edison

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.

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.
