Essex Powerlines was recently recognized at the Electricity Distributors Association Awards Gala.

This annual program acknowledges a diversity of key accomplishments, landmark customer programs, innovations and best practices on the part of the companies that deliver The Power of Local Hydro across Ontario.

The most prestigious award, the EDA Local Distribution Company Performance Excellence Award, recognizes outstanding performance in occupational health and safety, operations, finance and conservation; and contributions to the local community.

This year it was awarded to Essex Powerlines for accomplishments that included prioritization of the necessary conversion work to simplify its distribution system, reduce inventory, reduce maintenance costs, and reduce its distribution losses for the benefit of customers.

“I want to first and foremost thank the EDA for this special recognition. We are successful because of our employees, for everything they do on a day-to-day basis.” Joe Barile, General Manager, Essex Powerlines Corporation.

The award also recognizes a Local Distribution Company that contribute to the local community. This past year, Essex Powerlines has donated over $8,000 to local charities through paperless billing campaigns, invested $40,000 in youth and education programs (resulting in over $280,000 donated in the past seven years), and volunteered staff time and resources at various local events.
