Out of over 2,000 public power utilities across the United States, 184 utilities were recognized yesterday for providing consumers with the highest degree of reliable and safe electric service. These public utilities were presented with the Reliable Public Power Provider Award, known as the RP3. The City Clinton was one of the honored utility systems yesterday during the American Public Power Association’s annual Engineering & Operations Technical Conference held in Kissimmee, Fla.
“Receiving the RP3 designation means a lot to us,” said Mike Reddeck , Director of Public Works of the City of Clinton. “It’s an honor to be recognized on a national level for the work we are doing here locally in Clinton.”
City Manager Frank Stovall said “The Department of Public Works, including Mike Reddeck, Mary-Wallace Riley, and Kevin Snelgrove, have been instrumental in managing our utility operations to provide safe and reliable power to our customers.” He added “Our reliability figures are some of the best in country.”
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.
