Approximately 90% of revenues are from rate regulated natural gas and electric utilities with the remaining 10% comprised of long-term contracted hydroelectric generation operations. The regulated utilities serve more than 3M customers across Canada and in the United States and the Caribbean. Approximately 60% of AFFO is in US dollars and 35% in Canadian with the balance from Caribbean operations.

The largest business segments are ITC, UNS and Fortis(Alberta) contributing 29%, 26% and 10% respectively. The capital budget for 2017 is $3.1B and $13B for the next 3 years. Dividends are forecast to increase by 6% annually.
