Recognizing the hard work and dedication of the men and women of Entergy, the Edison Electric Institute awarded Entergy Corporation with its Emergency Assistance Award. 
The company was recognized for its outstanding power restoration efforts supporting Duke Energy following a severe winter storm that hit Virginia, North Carolina and South Carolina in January. Including this year’s honor, Entergy has received 43 awards from EEI for its restoration and mutual assistance work. 
More than 200 Entergy baseload contractors traveled to Virginia and the Carolinas to help restore power to Duke Energy customers. They spent four days working in extremely cold temperatures and in a wintry mix with significant icing, sleet and snow, along with high winds. 
Presented to EEI member companies, the Emergency Response Awards recognize recovery and assistance efforts of electric companies following service disruptions caused by extreme weather or other natural events. The winners were chosen by a panel of judges following an international nomination process, and the awards were presented today during EEI 2022, EEI’s annual thought leadership forum. 
“Over the past year, electric companies confronted severe storms and extreme weather events, including hurricanes, tornadoes, and winter storms, that impacted customers and communities across the nation,” said EEI President Tom Kuhn. “Despite challenging conditions, Entergy and its employees worked around the clock to restore power safely and as quickly as possible following the January winter storm. I congratulate and applaud Entergy and their employees for their continued dedication to the customers and communities that they serve, and I am honored to present
