MINNESOTA POWER HONORED FOR STORM RESPONSE
Thursday, February 16, 2017
The Edison Electric Institute (EEI) on Wednesday, Jan. 11, presented Minnesota Power with the association’s “Emergency Recovery Award” for its outstanding power restoration efforts after severe thunderstorms hit Minnesota in July 2016. Minnesota Power is a utility division of Allete, Inc.
The award is presented twice annually to 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 were chosen by a panel of judges following an international nomination process, and the awards were presented during the winter EEI board of directors and CEO meeting.
