Item 7.01 Regulation FD Disclosure.

See Item 2.02 Results of Operations and Financial Condition.

Statements included in this current Report and the documents incorporated by
reference which are not historical in nature are intended to be and are hereby
identified as "forward-looking statements" for purposes of the safe harbor
provided by Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended.
Forward-looking statements may be identified by words including "anticipates,"
"intends," "estimates," "expects," "believes," "projects," "plans," "assumes,"
"seeks," and similar expressions. Forward-looking statements including, without
limitation, those relating to Registrant's future business prospects, revenues,
proceeds, liquidity, working capital, income, and margins, are subject to
certain risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ
materially from those indicated in the forward-looking statements, due to
several important factors including those identified from time to time in the
forward-looking statements. Those factors include, but are not limited to:
weather; energy supply and demand; fuel prices; interest rates; developments in
the legislative, regulatory and competitive environment; market risks; potential
future acquisitions; the ability to obtain adequate and timely rate relief;
changes in fuel supply or costs including future market prices for energy,
capacity and ancillary services; electric and natural gas industry restructuring
and cost recovery; the success of strategies to satisfy electricity, natural
gas, fuel oil, and propane requirements; the outcome of pending litigation and
certain environmental matters, particularly the status of inactive hazardous
waste disposal sites and waste site remediation requirements; and certain
presently unknown or unforeseen factors, including, but not limited to, acts of
terrorism. Registrant undertakes no obligation to update publicly any
forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future
events, or otherwise. Given these uncertainties, undue reliance should not be
placed on the forward-looking statements.
