Honoring North American utilities for excellence in reliability and customer engagement: the ReliabilityOne™ awards


During the past year, the utility industry has faced tremendous pressure to transform to a digital business, meet the challenge of an ageing workforce and satisfy the need for substantial infrastructure investment. At the same time, customers have called upon utilities to maintain superior levels of reliability and customer service. Our ReliabilityOne™ winners have risen to the challenge and are demonstrating leadership among their peers.

In recognition, PA Consulting Group's annual ReliabilityOne™ awards – which honor utilities that have excelled in providing outstanding reliability and customer service to their customers – are more important than ever before.

PA's ReliabilityOne™ awards are widely recognized as one of the most prestigious honors in the electric utility industry, recognizing organizations that provide their customers with the highest levels of reliability.

PA recognized six regional ReliabilityOne™ winners from utilities across the U.S. for the 2013 calendar year. The selections were based on overall system wide performance in both outage duration and frequency. PA awarded its annual National ReliabilityOne™ Excellence Award to one of its winners that demonstrated superior leadership, innovation and achievement in the area of electric reliability. PA also selected from its group of winners, the utility that had the Best Response to a Major Outage Event and the utility with the most Outstanding System-Wide Reliability.

Of note, PA expanded its program to include Outstanding Reliability Performance for Midsize Utilities and introduced two new award categories – Outstanding Customer Engagement and Outstanding Technology and Innovation.
