            On October 30, 2006, Registrant issued its third quarter 2006
            earnings, as described in the Press Release of Registrant filed
            herewith as Exhibit 99, to which reference is made.

            This information is not deemed "filed" for purposes of Section 18 of
            the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, is not subject to
            the liabilities of that section and is not deemed incorporated by
            reference in any filing under the Securities Act of 1933, as

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
            Registrants' 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. Registrants
            undertake 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.
