CON EDISON NAMED A RECIPIENT OF THE 2009 ReliabilityOne™ AWARD IN THE NORTHEAST REGION
Award recognizes most reliable electric utilities nationwide
NEW YORK — Con Edison has been recognized by PA Consulting Group as the recipient of the 2009 ReliabilityOne™ award in the Northeast Region. The ReliabilityOne™ award is given annually to the utilities that have excelled in delivering reliable electric service to their customers.
“Our 14,000 people who work throughout New York City and Westchester County remain committed to delivering the highest level of reliability to our customers,” said John Miksad, Con Edison senior vice president for Electric Operations. “Our employees work in manholes and on utility poles with high voltage in all kinds of weather and adverse conditions, every day, 24 - 7. This award is a recognition of their talent and dedication.”
All utilities operating electric delivery networks in North America are eligible for consideration for the ReliabilityOneTM award. There are a total of five regional awards including Northeast, Mid-Atlantic, Midwest, Plains, and West; and one to a community utility. The selection of provisional recipients is based primarily on system reliability statistics that measure the frequency and duration of customer outages. After provisional recipients are selected, each company undergoes an on-site certification process, which provides an independent review and confirmation of the policies, processes and systems used to collect, analyze and report a company's reliability results.
“Con Edison represents an outstanding group of award recipients from across the country,” said Jeff Lewis, PA’s ReliabilityOne™ Program Director. “Con Edison has distinguished itself for its commitment to delivering outstanding reliability to customers in a manner which shows that they have really sharpened their focus towards setting the bar for industry performance.”
