KAUKAUNA UTILITIES RECEIVES NATIONAL RECOGNITION FOR RELIABLE ELECTRIC OPERATIONS
WASHINGTON, D.C., April 23, 2008—Kaukauna Utilities is one of 84 of the nation’s more than 2,000 public power utilities to earn Reliable Public Power ProviderTM (RP3) recognition from the American Public Power Association for providing consumers with the highest degree of reliable and safe electric service. Terry Huval, director of utilities for Lafayette, La., Utilities System, and chair of the APPA Board of Directors, presented the designees on April 23, 2008 during the association’s annual Engineering & Operations Technical Conference, held in Indianapolis, Ind.
“RP3 designees exemplify the highest standards of utility operations,” said Paul Allen, vice president, engineering at Nashville, Tenn., Electric Service and chair of APPA’s RP3 Review Panel, “These utilities are leading the way in providing reliable and safe electric service to their communities.”
The RP3 recognizes public power utilities that demonstrate proficiency in four key disciplines: reliability, safety, training 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.
“Kaukauna Utilities is proud to be re-certified as a RP3 Platinum level electric utility,” said Jeff Feldt, General Manager of Kaukauna Utilities. “This recognition is a testament to the quality work our employees do everyday on behalf of our customers.”
This is the third year that the RP3 award has been offered. APPA is the national organization representing more than 2,000 not-for-profit, community- and state- owned electric utilities. It is located in Washington, D.C.
