National award honors NorthWestern Energy spring storm and flood responses

NorthWestern Energy was recently announced as an Edison Electric Institute 

Emergency Response Award recipient. The Emergency Response Awards are presented to EEI member companies twice a year to recognize recovery and assistance efforts of electric companies following service disruptions caused by extreme weather or other natural events. 

The winners were chosen by a panel of judges following an international nomination process, and the awards were presented during EEI’s winter Board of Directors and CEO meeting.

NorthWestern Energy is recognized for safely restoring energy service as quickly as possible after a derecho in May in South Dakota with winds as high as 107 miles per hour, and historic flooding in June that washed out bridges and roads and caused severe property damage in several areas of Montana.
