Welcome to NEPOOL, PPL.

PPL will also acquire National Grid's Rhode Island utility business, the Narragansett Electric Company, for an equity value of $3.8 billion.

I look forward to your contributions as NEPOOL discusses possible pathways forward in New England; https://nepool.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/01/NPC_20210107_Felder_Report_on_Pathways_rev1.pdf

PPL announced in 2020 that it intended to shift its focus to U.S. utility investments, saying a simplified corporate structure would boost shareholder value. National Grid says it wants "increased exposure" to the U.K.'s electricity sector, where it plans "a more holistic approach" to the country's net zero carbon ambitions.

Really interesting framing-- I tend to look at utilities from a national perspective because it's not a business where you're typically selling/exporting across borders (save for some well-positioned power utilities), but the broadening view of investment exposure will be a trend I bet we'll continue to watch.
