Duke earned $688 million, or 97 cents per share. That's up from $435 million, or 62 cents per share, in the same quarter the year before.

Excluding one-time charges, the company posted net income of $1 per share Tuesday, topping Wall Street expectations by a nickel.

Profits at the company's regulated utilities increased 22 percent to $607 million, helped by rate increases and lower operating and maintenance expenses.
