The Dayton Power and Light Company (DP&L), a subsidiary of The AES Corporation (NYSE: AES), was presented today with the Edison Electric Institutes (EEIs) Emergency Recovery Award for its outstanding power restoration efforts after an ice storm hit Ohio in November 2018.

The Emergency Recovery Award is given to select EEI member companies to recognize their extraordinary efforts to restore power to customers after service disruptions caused by severe weather conditions or other natural events. The winners are chosen by a panel of judges following an international nomination process. Dayton Power & Light Company received the award during EEI 2019, the electric power industrys premiere annual conference.
