ComEd Honored With Industry Awards For Outstanding Emergency Response

Stocks in this article: EXC

In October 2012, ComEd sent more than 1,000 employees and contractors to assist its sister utilities, PECO in Philadelphia and BGE in Baltimore, with their restoration efforts following the devastation of Hurricane Sandy.  Crews from ComEd worked for three weeks in four states in difficult and dangerous conditions to help local utilities restore power to more than 9 million residents affected by the storm.

"This past year brought many unique challenges and I am proud of the way ComEd employees answered the call," said Terence R. Donnelly, executive vice president and chief operating officer for ComEd. "We saw great innovation from all areas of our company that translated into improved restoration efforts."

ComEd was honored previously by EEI for both emergency recovery and assistance. The utility received the Emergency Recovery Award in 2007 and 2008 and the Emergency Assistance Award in 2011 for restoration assistance after Hurricane Irene. 

"ComEd was faced with major restoration efforts locally following the July 1 storm and in assistance following Hurricane Sandy," said EEI President Tom Kuhn.  "Getting the lights back on quickly and safely is never easy following these natural disasters.  It takes strong commitment, advanced planning, and great execution.  ComEd responded with all three.  They're a great example for the nation's electric power industry.  I congratulate them."

The Emergency Recovery and Emergency Assistance Awards are presented annually by EEI and recognize exceptional efforts in restoring electric service that has been disrupted by severe weather or other natural events. A panel of judges chose the recipients following an international nomination process. EEI is the association of United States investor-owned electric utilities and industry affiliates and associates worldwide. Its U.S. members serve about 70 percent of the nation's electrical consumers.

Commonwealth Edison Company (ComEd) is a unit of Chicago-based Exelon Corporation (NYSE: EXC), the nation's leading competitive energy provider, with approximately 6.6 million customers. ComEd provides service to approximately 3.8 million customers across northern Illinois, or 70 percent of the state's population .
