- Electric Light & Power has named Southern Company as the number one electric utility in North America due to its "high rankings in market capitalization, innovation, construction, job creation and customer satisfaction reports."
- The publication also announced two CEOs of the Year: Pepco Holdings Inc.'s Joseph M. Rigby and Navajo Tribal Utility Authority's General Manager Walter W. Haase.
- Southern Company is the fourth-largest utility in the U.S. and serves some 4.4 million customers in Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, and Florida.
From the article:
Rigby won in the Large Utility CEO of the Year division, open to North American electric utilities with 400,000 customers or more. Haase won in the Small Utility CEO of the Year division, open to North American electric utilities with fewer than 400,000 customers.
A feature article on Southern Company appears in the November-December issue of Electric Light & Power magazine, and another on Rigby and Haase will appear in the January-February issue. ...
