Revenues for the quarter were $1.5 billion, compared with $1.3 billion in the first quarter of last year. The strong performance from the company’s electric and natural gas segment was driven by increased electric wholesale activity and higher electric and natural gas retail sales as a result of cooler weather during the first quarter of 2001 as compared to the first quarter of 2000.
