Electric TransmissionNU’s transmission segment earned $249.7 million for the full year of 2012 and $68.6 million in the fourth quarter of 2012, compared with earnings of $199.6 million for the full year of 2011 and $71.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2011. The earnings improvement for the full year primarily represents continued investment in NU’s transmission system, including the $718 million Greater Springfield Reliability Project (GSRP), as well as the addition of NSTAR Electric Company transmission results as of April 2012. Lower fourth quarter results primarily reflect a higher effective tax rate in 2012 than in 2011.
