EEI Index of Investor-Owned Electric Utilities
The EEI Index Award for investor-owned electric utilities is presented annually to EEI member companies that have achieved the highest total shareholder return in their Large- and Small-Capitalization categories.


The EEI Index returns are based on total shareholder return calculations. The award is given to companies with the highest five-year returns through September 30, and presented to the winning companies at EEI's Annual Financial Conference.

Additionally, aggregate EEI Index results are calculated on an ongoing basis, providing a good benchmark for member companies among their peer electric utilities, and for electric utilities against other business sectors. The overall EEI Index calculation is market cap-weighted.
