[ARCHIVED] Electric Reliability


The Coldwater Board of Public Utilities is one of 82 of the nation’s more than 2,000 public power utilities to earn Reliable Public Power Provider recognition from the American Public Power Association for providing consumers with the highest degree of reliable and safe electric service.  Paul Allen, vice president, engineering at Nashville, Tenn., Electric Service and chair of APPA’s RP3 Review Panel, presented the designees on March 21, during the association’s annual Engineering & Operations Technical Conference, held in Nashville, Tenn.

“These RP3 designated utilities should be proud,” said Allen, “They stand out as utilities that are continuing to strive for excellence for their customers and their communities.”

The RP3 program 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.

“This is a real honor for our utility,” said Paul Beckhusen, Director of the Coldwater Board of Public Utilities. “A lot of hard work and dedication by our employees has gone into receiving this designation, and in the end, our customers are the real winners."
