The article reports that power plant valuations are improving in the Southwest and Northeast areas of the United States. For instance, Duke Energy's auction of nine gas-fired plants in California, Arizona and New England is considered one of the largest contested sales of power assets. However, the decision of Duke to retain its midwestern assets indicates power market conditions there remain poor for gas-fired generators.
