CONSOL Energy (NYSE: CNX) rose sharply on the assumption that the need for coal would rise after the nuclear accident in Japan. Range Resources (NYSE: RRC) rose for the same reason

Peabody Energy (NYSE: BTU) said it will redeem its 5.875% senior notes due 2016 on April 15, 2011, using its cash balance.

First Solar (NASDAQ: FSLR) was among solar stocks which moved up because of technology advances in the industry. The firm also said it would expand as it builds a $300 million facility in Arizona.
