Vistra and Malta in…

Vistra and Malta in collaboration with Southwest Research Institute, have been awarded a Department of Energy grant. The federally funded project will study how Malta's energy storage system can improve the environmental and economic performance of a natural gas-powered power plant, help to balance the diverse power generation on electric grids, and improve the reliability and resiliency of the electric system as more intermittent renewables come online. The U.S. Department of Energy-funded study will focus on integration of the Malta system with a Vistra-owned natural gas-fired plant to optimize its environmental and economic performance. The Malta energy storage system will use electricity generated by the natural gas plant, convert and store that energy as heat, and then convert it back to electricity that can be redistributed on the electric grid as demand necessitates. The unique design of the Malta system would further diversify Vistra's generation portfolio and create a more stable and resilient grid as intermittent renewable resources comprise a greater percentage of the generating capacity in the years ahead.

Vistra and its…

Vistra and its subsidiary, Electric Energy, Inc., are announcing the retirement of the Joppa Power Plant by Sept. 1, 2022, three years earlier than previously disclosed. The revised closing date is part of an agreement Vistra has reached in order to settle a complaint brought by the Sierra Club in 2018 before the Illinois Pollution Control Board concerning allegations of environmental exceedances occurring prior to Vistra's ownership. Due to the mounting financial and legal pressures that now come from operating coal plants, the company is renewing its call for passage of the Illinois Coal to Solar and Energy Storage Act to facilitate Vistra's $550-million repurposing of coal plant sites across central and southern Illinois. Vistra is in the process of working with the plant's local union leadership and will honor the plant's locally negotiated commitments regarding severance and outplacement benefits, as well as wages, health care, and other benefits during the remainder of operations. Through the Coal to Solar and Energy Storage Act, Vistra proposes to invest more than half a billion dollars to develop approximately 300 MW of utility-scale solar and 175 MW of battery energy storage. This nine-site construction program would help Illinois more than triple its in-state utility-scale solar generation capacity and more than double its battery energy storage capacity - all by 2025. If the Act passes, Vistra intends to build a stand-alone 45-MW battery energy storage facility at the Joppa plant, which does not have the site characteristics to support utility-scale solar. The new battery system would store enough electricity to power approximately 22,500 homes.

Evercore ISI analyst Durgesh Chopra lowered the firm's price target on Vistra Energy (VST) to $24 from $27 and keeps an Outperform rating on the shares after Texas utility peer NRG Energy (NRG) held a business update conference call and said they now estimate a loss of $750M related to the Texas' Winter Storm Uri. NRG, which withdrew its 2021 guidance, also stressed that its $750M estimate is "not a final number, but rather an estimate that has further potential downside or upside depending on a range of outcomes," noted Chopra.

As previously reported, Wolfe Research analyst Steve Fleishman downgraded NRG Energy (NRG) to Peer Perform from Outperform with an unchanged price target of $47, downgraded Vistra Energy (VST) to Peer Perform from Outperform with a price target of $20, down rom $24, and lowered his IPP sector rating to Market Weight from Market Overweight. He thinks it will "take a long time to rebuild confidence in the ERCOT construct" and sees more uncertainty to Texas exposures in the near and intermediate term than investors may appreciate, Fleishman stated.

BofA analyst Julien Dumoulin-Smith upgraded Vistra Energy to Buy from Neutral with a $20 price target, noting that the company's disclosure of a negative $900M-$1.3B potential impact from the Texas' severe weather event "clearly surprised the market" given the $5-$6 per share hit to valuation seen in the stock following the news. However, he thinks the company's outlook is intact despite the sharp slide in the shares on Friday as he view what happened in Texas as "a low-likelihood, almost 'one-time' event," Dumoulin-Smith tells investors.
