BOSTON, March 27 U.S. regional power utility
Southern Company plans to produce a full report on its
renewable energy projects, an activist group said on Thursday.
The Oakland, California-based As You Sow foundation said in
return for Southern's planned report, it has withdrawn a
shareholder resolution calling on the Atlanta-based utility to
outline steps it could take to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
Southern representatives were not immediately available to
comment. Activists have struck similar deals lately with other
utilities including one earlier this month by Exxon Mobil Corp
