PRESS RELEASE: Moorhead Public Service recognized as a Smart Energy Provider

 

For Immediate Release on Friday, November 1, 2019

 

Moorhead Public Service has earned a Smart Energy Provider (SEP) designation from the American Public Power Association for demonstrating commitment to and proficiency in energy efficiency, distributed generation, and environmental initiatives that support a goal of providing low-cost, quality, safe, and reliable electric service. Chris Van Dokkumburg, Planning Analyst at ‎Holland Board of Public Works and Chair of the Energy Services Committee, in Michigan presented the designations on October 29 during the Association’s annual Customer Connections Conference held in New Orleans, Louisiana.

 

The SEP designation, which lasts for two years (December 1st, 2019 to November 30th, 2021) recognizes public power utilities for demonstrating leading practices in four key disciplines: smart energy program structure; energy efficiency and distributed energy programs; environmental and sustainability initiatives; and the customer experience. This is the first year the Association has offered the SEP designation. Moorhead Public Service joins more than 60 public power utilities nationwide that received the inaugural SEP designation.

 

“This designation highlights utilities that are really stepping up to deliver their customers top-notch programs and services,” said Van Dokkumburg. “These utilities are going beyond ‘keeping the lights on,’ and their communities should be proud.”

 

“We’re honored to be recognized for our efforts to support our community’s responsible energy use,” said Bill Schwandt, General Manager of Moorhead Public Service. “We take a lot of pride in the programs we offer that help our customers save money and reduce our collective footprint on the environment. It’s encouraging to be recognized as a best-of-breed utility when it comes to smart energy.”

 

As a community-owned utility, Moorhead Public Service strives to be recognized as a regional leader by providing innovative, efficient, reliable and high-quality municipal services in a manner which maximizes current and future stakeholder satisfaction.

 

The American Public Power Association is the voice of not-for-profit, community-owned utilities that power 49 million people in 2,000 towns and cities nationwide. The Association advocates and advises on electricity policy, technology, trends, training, and operations.
