"SMUD customers and employees should be proud to have Mr. Di Stasio leading their utility," said Teresa Hansen, the magazine's editor in chief. "Mr. Di Stasio helped SMUD become the only large utility in California to meet the statewide goal of supplying 20 percent of its power from renewables in 2010, he has led the utility to financial stability, and SMUD customers are very, very happy." Di Stasio announced in August that he will retire from SMUD this year.

Hansen presented the award Jan. 27 in San Antonio during the fifth annual Electric Light & Power Executive Conference. 

Di Stasio won in the large utility division, open to North American electric utilities with 400,000 customers or more. 

A feature article on Di Stasio will appear in the January-February issue of the magazine and on its website.
