Ninety-four public power utilities have earned Reliable Public Power Provider recognition from APPA for providing consumers with the highest degree of reliable and safe electric service. The RP3 awards were presented Monday during the APPA Engineering & Operations Technical Conference in Omaha, Neb.

"The RP3 designation represents a high level of service to communities all over the country," said Paul Allen, vice president of engineering at the Nashville Electric Service in Tennessee, who chairs the RP3 Review Panel. "These 94 utilities stand out as models of safe and reliable utility operations," he said.

The RP3 award 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.

This is the fifth year that the RP3 designation has been offered. More information and a full list of designees—recognized in three categories—is available at —JEANNINE ANDERSON
