APPA’s RP3 Award
In 2016, the American Public Power Association (APPA) again recognized PWC as a Diamond Level Reliable Public Power Provider (RP3). While achieving the highest possible score, PWC received the Diamond Level recognition for the fourth time since the APPA began recognizing its member utilities that achieved excellence in the areas of reliability, safety, training, and system improvement.
The goal of the RP3 award is to recognize those leading utilities that demonstrate sound business practices and recognized industry best practices. The APPA is the national organization representing more than 2,000 not-for-profit, community- and state- owned electric utilities.
During its first year of eligibility in 2007, PWC was awarded its first RP3 award. PWC has the distinction of being one of only six of the more than 2,000 eligible utilities to win three or more Diamond designations.
