U.S. Carbon Rule Will Bring a ‘Seismic Shift’, Stock Market Winners

SolarCity Corporation, EnerNOC, Inc., NextEra Energy, Inc., and General Electric could be among the stock market winners when the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s new carbon pollution regulation goes into effect, according to this post on AltEnergyStocks. Roen says the regulation will bring “a seismic shift in the power generation landscape,” favouring companies that can help states deliver on the four building blocks in the EPA plan: improved power plant operations, substituting high-carbon coal generation with natural gas, substituting fossil fuel facilities with low- and zero-carbon renewables, and greater energy efficiency. “While the proposed regulations are still in a draft phase, there is no doubt that the changes already occurring in the utility business will continue,” Roen writes. “Savvy investors well positioned in the proper companies and industries will be sure to benefit from this continued energy transformation.” (Please do not take this summary as investment advice.
