Moorhead Public Service Receives National Recognition
for Reliable Electric Operations


Arlington, VA.—Moorhead Public Service has earned a Reliable Public Power Provider (RP3®)[1] designation from the American Public Power Association (APPA) for providing reliable and safe electric service. Brent McKinney, Director of Electric Transmission and Distribution at City Utilities of Springfield, Missouri, and chair of APPA’s RP3 Review Panel, presented the designees on April 4, 2016, during APPA’s annual Engineering & Operations Technical Conference held in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

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. The RP3 designation is for three years. Moorhead Public Service is one of 29 utilities that earned the designation this year. In total, 219 of the more than 2,000 public power utilities nation-wide hold the RP3 designation.


“RP
3 utilities stand out as industry leaders, who dedicate themselves to providing safe and reliable electricity to their customers,” said McKinney. “These designees demonstrate public power’s commitment to constantly improving best practices and raising the bar for other service providers.”


“We’re honored to receive the RP
3 designation,” said Bill Schwandt, General Manager of Moorhead Public Service. “Our utility staff puts in a lot of hard work to serve the community of Moorhead. RP3 represents a much appreciated recognition of this hard work.”


APPA is the national organization representing more than 2,000 not-for-profit, community- and state-owned electric utilities. APPA is located in Arlington, Virginia.

 

[1] RP3® is a registered service mark of APPA.
