Over the past few years, utilities have begun picking sides. Renewables vs Fossil Fuels...Clean Coal vs Natural Gas...Nuclear vs Zero Nuclear...The list goes on. One company, however, has been incorporating them all, and that's NRG Energy (NYSE:NRG). With a stable base-load portfolio of coal and nuclear assets, NRG Energy has rapidly begun improving its renewable portfolio with both solar and wind generation.

It's this open minded approach that has attracted Motley Fool analyst, Taylor Muckerman, to NRG Energy over the past year. Thus far, he had held off from purchasing shares as they raced out to a stellar performance during the first half of 2014. Given the pullback since June, he feels that now is the time to invest in this progressive company. Find out why in the short video clip below.
