In a recent EIA energy conference, newly appointed Secretary of Energy Ernest Moniz discussed the future of United States energy policy, and while the Secretary recognizes the vast importance of oil and natural gas production, he is also well attuned to the need of a diverse portfolio of of energy sources. While growing factions are increasingly becoming either pro-fossil fuels or pro-renewable sources, the approach going forward will fall under an "all of the above" policy. Check out the following video for more information on Dr. Moniz's energy policy, in addition to information on a few utility companies that are geared to take advantage of the "all of the above" policy approach. 

As the U.S. pushes for a diverse energy approach, Exelon is perfectly positioned to capitalize on having the largest nuclear fleet in North America in addition to growing renewable and natural gas power generation sources. This strength, combined with an increased focus on balance sheet health and its recent merger with Constellation, places Exelon and its resized dividend on a short list of the top utilities.
