Abstract
As the U.S. economy sluggishly churns ahead, electricity demand continues to slowly grow again, providing support for the domestic investor-owned regulated electric utility industry. In addition, capital market access remains favorable and regulatory decisions, in general, have supported credit quality. And, we expect continued responsive rate orders for cost recovery for capital investments, including environmental compliance projects, and continued appetite by investors for electric utility debt and equity offerings to finance growth projects. Therefore, our base case outlook for the balance of the year for the electric utility sector is currently stable. Standard & Poor's Ratings Services' base case outlook for the remainder of 2011 for the U.S. investor-owned regulated electric utility industry is stable based on the following fundamentals:...
