ENMAX Corporation today announced its
financial results for the three months ended June 30, 2011. Earnings for the second quarter were $50.1 million compared to $58.6 million in the same period last year. The decline in earnings for the quarter was largely due to lower electricity margins and higher operating costs. This brings year-to-date earnings to $99.9 million, down from $105.6 million for the same period last year.
“Given the year over year decline in electricity margins, we are pleased with our financial results,” said Charles Ruigrok, Interim President and CEO. “We are also very pleased to see the start of field construction on our Shepard project, and to see our residential solar offer rolled out to Alberta consumers. Both are important elements of our commitment to a cleaner energy future for Alberta.”
