Alternative energy isn't going away, even with the change of administration in Washington, says Jim von Riesemann, a senior analyst at Mizuho. He notes that renewables are now cost competitive, and alternative energy projects have been completed in several states. One of his favorite picks is NextEra Energy (NEE - Get Report) , which von Riesemann calls a "best in class" company. He also is a fan of Scana Corp. (SCG) , which he says will deliver strong dividend growth and generate cash for shareholders once its new nuclear plants are up and operating.
