EEI Announces Finalists for 2020 Edison Award
The Edison Electric Institute (EEI) today announced the finalists for the 2020 Edison Award. Presented annually, the Edison Award recognizes electric companies for their distinguished leadership, innovation, and contribution to the advancement of the electric power industry.
In March, an independent panel of reviewers met to evaluate the nominations and selected Consumers Energy, Dominion Energy, NV Energy and PacifiCorp, Southern Company, and Xcel Energy as finalists for this year’s U.S. Edison Award. ATCO and Compagnie Ivoirienne d’Electricité were named finalists for the International Edison Award.
The winners of the 92nd Edison Award will be selected by a panel of former electric company chief executives.
ATCO – ATCO is leading the way in developing state-of-the-art energy infrastructure in North America, and pioneering models for consultation and engagement, long-term relationships, and reconciliation with Indigenous peoples. Alberta PowerLine (APL), a partnership between Canadian Utilities, an ATCO company, and Quanta Services, built the Fort McMurray 500-kV West Transmission Project in northern Alberta, Canada. Spanning 508 km (316 miles), the project is the longest 500-kV AC transmission line in the country.
“This is a significant contract for our company and our state. We are eager to put Maine people to work on this important project that brings both clean energy and economic benefits to the State,” said Andi Vigue, president and CEO at Cianbro.
