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. Finally, electric utilities are also adapting to new environmental regulations. On Thursday, electric utilities ended mostly lower even as the broad market ended higher.
