Danville Utilities has once again earned the Reliable Public Power Provider (RP3®) designation from the American Public Power Association for providing customers with reliable and safe electric service.
The designation was presented recently during the association’s annual Engineering & Operations Technical Conference held in San Antonio, Texas.
“Utilities that have earned an RP3 designation demonstrate public power’s emphasis on achieving leading practices and providing a high level of service to communities,” said David Lynch, chair of the association’s RP3 Review Panel. Lynch is assistant director of utility operations at Marquette Board of Light and Power in Marquette, Mich.
The RP3 designation recognizes public power utilities that demonstrate proficiency in four key disciplines: reliability, safety, workforce development and system improvement. Criteria within each category are based on sound business practices and represent a utility-wide commitment to safe and reliable delivery of electricity.
“We’re honored to again be recognized as a Reliable Public Power Provider,” said Andy Early, engineering technician supervisor for Danville Utilities. “We work hard to provide reliable service, and this designation is a testimony to that commitment.”
Danville Utilities has received the designation multiple times and will retain the RP3 designation for three years. It joins more than 220 of the nation’s public power utilities that currently hold the designation.
The American Public Power Association is the voice of not-for-profit, community-owned utilities that power 49 million people in 2,000 towns and cities nationwide. The association advocates and advises on electricity policy, technology, trends, training and operations.
