SO historically provides stability in depressed markets and recovers more quickly than most on emerging from depressed markets. SO is making the change to natural gas fired plants as a replacement for coal energy. It's cheaper, simpler to permit and operate, and less polluting. Other utilities are going this direction; SO is simply in the lead.
