The shift towards greener, cleaner and more renewable energy sources is accelerating but it is also costing companies a lot of cash. Debt levels throughout the industry are ticking upward but revenues are still consistent. The long-term advantages of such moves could reward patient investors however. The Southern Company [Free Research Report on SO] (1) saw feeble earnings of late largely because of weather related issues but its debts and heavy investments in Nuclear energy and clean coal also contributed to its financial woes.

Natural gas prices are also edging higher as the country's seemingly never ending supply glut appears to be contracting. Utilities with a diverse mix of power sources are beginning to make adjustments to their ratios. Nuclear facilities are gaining favor amongst electric utilities such as Southern Company which wish to mitigate their exposure to natural gas pricing volatility. Still, supplies may yet edge higher as drilling operations increase and become more efficient.

Southern Co. will be releasing its financial report on January 30th.  For its last reported quarter, the company projected that its earnings for its upcoming fourth quarter would be in the range of $0.38 to $0.40 per share.
