    DP&L earns EEI Emergency Recovery Award for restoration efforts following Winter Storm Avery

    DAYTON, Ohio – June 11, 2019 – The Dayton Power and Light Company (DP&L), a subsidiary of The AES Corporation (NYSE: AES), was presented today with the Edison Electric Institute’s (EEI’s) “Emergency Recovery Award” for its outstanding power restoration efforts after an ice storm hit Ohio in November 2018.

    The Emergency Recovery Award is given to select EEI member companies to recognize their extraordinary efforts to restore power to customers after service disruptions caused by severe weather conditions or other natural events. The winners are chosen by a panel of judges following an international nomination process. Dayton Power & Light Company received the award during EEI 2019, the electric power industry’s premiere annual conference. 

    In November, a snow and ice storm struck Ohio resulting in more than 80,000 service outages in Dayton Power & Light Company’s territory. Due to their tireless work, Dayton Power & Light Company’s crews restored service to 100 percent of customers within four days after the storm, dedicating 37,360 man-hours to the recovery.

    “Dayton Power & Light Company is deserving of this award for its efforts to restore service quickly and safely in Ohio after ice and wind storms,” said EEI President Tom Kuhn. “The dedication of Dayton Power & Light Company’s crews reflects our industry’s commitment to our customers, and I thank them for their tireless work.”

    “On behalf of all of our DP&L people, we are extremely honored to be recognized with EEI’s Emergency Recovery Award for our recovery efforts following the snow and ice storm in Ohio last November,” said Lisa Krueger, AES US SBU President “We take great pride in serving our customers and thank the crews for their extraordinary efforts working long hours in difficult conditions to safely restore electric service to our customers and neighbors.”
