Utilities rethinking their plans.
Roof top Solar cuts back on transmission needs.
A plan for a new coal plant in Michigan is being mothballed. Wind-energy developers in Oregon are cutting back on projects. And in Colorado, Xcel Energy says it may no longer need a proposed high-tension power line to the San Luis Valley.
All these projects are being hit by a shift in the utility industry created by increased energy efficiency, small generation projects, such as rooftop solar, and changes in public policy, industry analysts and executives say.
