Has the market done for the utility power mix what Congress, the Obama administration, and the Supreme Court couldn’t?

Despite the recent legal roadblock from the nation’s top court to the Obama administration plan to regulate climate change-inducing pollution, executives from one end of the utility industry to the other say they don’t see their plans changing much.

In fact, a new survey of more than 500 utility executives conducted by Utility Dive showed that a large majority support the EPA's Clean Power Plan, which aims to cut U.S. carbon emissions 32% by 2030, and a significant portion want to see it strengthened.
