Pepco Holdings Honored By The Edison Electric Institute

Pepco Holdings, Inc. (PHI) has received an Emergency Assistance Award from Edison Electric Institute for outstanding service in 2012 for its assistance to other utilities and for its restoration after Hurricane Sandy on Oct. 29.

The electric power industry’s Emergency Assistance Awards are presented each year to recognize extraordinary efforts undertaken in restoring electric service to customers and to other utility companies whose service has been disrupted by severe weather conditions or other natural events.

“It is a privilege to accept this honor on behalf of the thousands of PHI employees who serve our nearly 2 million customers every day but especially during a crisis,” said Joseph M. Rigby, PHI chairman, president, and CEO.

PHI was chosen to receive the award by following an international nomination process.

“PHI was faced with a major restoration effort following Hurricane Sandy,” said EEI President Tom Kuhn. “Getting the lights back on quickly and safely is never easy following these natural disasters. Working through the industry’s mutual assistance program, PHI crews were essential in helping their fellow utility companies restore service in affected neighborhoods. Importantly, PHI’s assistance also shows their compassion in helping others in their time of need. I congratulate them.”

The Edison Electric Institute (EEI) is the association of U.S. shareholder-owned electric companies. Its members serve 95 percent of the ultimate customers in the shareholder-owned segment of the industry, and represent approximately 70 percent of the U.S. electric power industry. It also has more than 65 International electric companies as Affiliate members, and more than 170 industry suppliers and related organizations as Associate members.

About PHI: Pepco Holdings, Inc.
