Avista Has 14% Earnings Increase

Avista Corp. reported a 14 percent increase in earnings during the first quarter, citing higher energy sales from a colder than normal winter. Residential electric use increased 4 percent per customer and residential natural gas use increased 1 percent. The Spokane-based utility reported a net income of $48.5 million, or 81 cents per share, for the quarter, compared to $42.3 million, or 71 cents per share, during the first quarter of 2013. Company revenues were $490.9 million during the quarter. Avista’s earnings also benefited from rate increases approved by regulators across its service territory in Washington, Idaho and Oregon, said Chairman and CEO Scott Morris in a press release/Becky Kramer, SR.

Question: Did you do as well financially this winter as Avista did?
