Applications for APPA's Reliable Public Power Provider program are due Sept. 30
Originally published September 20, 2013
APPA is accepting applications for the 2013 Reliable Public Power Provider (RP3) program through Sept. 30.
The RP3 program recognizes utilities that demonstrate high proficiency in four areas: reliability, safety, workforce development, and system improvement. Criteria within each of the four RP3 areas are based upon sound business practices and a utility-wide commitment to safe and reliable delivery of service. RP3 recipients have used the program to improve their systems through the inherent self-check process, to demonstrate the value of a public power utility to customers, and, in some cases, to negotiate lower bond and insurance rates.
In 2012 and 2013, 184 of the nation's more than 2,000 public power utilities earned RP3 recognition. Lists of recent RP3-recognized utilities are posted on APPA's website.
Information on the program and how to apply is available in the RP3 section of APPA's website, www.PublicPower.org. Questions about the program also can be directed to APPA's Engineering Services department by emailing them at RP3@PublicPower.org or calling 202/467-2900.
