Recognizing Entergy employees’ expertise in restoring power to those affected by major outages, the Edison Electric Institute has awarded two emergency response awards to the company. Entergy received EEI’s Emergency Recovery Award and the Emergency Assistance Award. This marks 19 consecutive years (every year since 1998) EEI has awarded Entergy with a national storm restoration award.
The awards were for exemplary work to restore power following severe thunderstorms and flooding in 2016 and for helping other utility companies recover from devastation caused by Hurricane Matthew.
“The tireless work of Entergy’s crews to quickly and safely restore service to customers, and to lend assistance to neighboring electric companies, demonstrates the industry’s strong commitment to customer service,” said EEI President Tom Kuhn.
