Chartwell's Best Practice Awards: Excellence in Outage Initiatives

    Entry deadline: Wednesday, February 8, 2023.


    The purpose of Chartwell's Best Practice Awards is to identify and celebrate excellence in initiatives aimed at improving customer experience, communications, and awareness in the electric, gas, and water utility industry. Additionally, this awards program serves to facilitate the sharing of innovative, successful ideas with others in the industry.

    In recognition of excellence in outage initiative, three utilities in each category will be awarded during Chartwell’s PowerUp conference with gold, silver and bronze recognition. Winning utilities will be notified in February 2023. All winners and finalists will be contacted shortly after the announcement to participate in a case study on their efforts and discuss logistics for either a presentation at the conference or a Chartwell webinar.
