Debt-laden power producer Dynegy Inc (NYSE:DYN) had a power surge on Friday morning on reports that Vistra Energy Corp (NYSE:VST) was mulling a bid.

The Wall Street Journal reported that Dallas-based Vistra is in talks to buy Dynegy as a means of expanding its footprint beyond Texas.

Although Dynegy is also based in Texas, it has 50 plants across the country.

Shares in Dynegy were up 23% at US$8.95 in lunchtime trading, while Vistra shares, up 22 cents at US$15.02, were also wanted.

Power producers have been under pressure from sliding wholesale prices of late, as demand has been sluggish and competition from renewable energy sources has started to bite.
