PPL Named Best Electric Utility in North America for 2013

PPL Corp. in Allentown, Penn., was named the 2013 Utility of the Year by Electric Light & Power magazine. Editor in Chief Teresa Hansen and her researchers measured North American utility customer satisfaction, financial health, plus storm preparedness and response among multiple other metrics to select the winner. “PPL won the Utility of the Year award in 2008, and it is unheard of for a utility to win the award again so soon, Hansen said. PPL Chairman, President and CEO William H. Spence said, “PPL continues to grow and evolve, but we never lose sight of the fundamentals on which our companies have been built: employee and public safety, world-class customer service and solid corporate citizenship. Recent winners of the Electric Light & Power Utility of the Year award include Southe Co. in 2012, OG&E in 2011, Canada’s Hydro-Quebec in 2010 and Chicago-based Exelon Corp. in 2009.
