APPA’s RP3 Award

In 2019, the American Public Power Association (APPA) again recognized PWC as a Diamond Level Reliable Public Power Provider (RP3).

PWC joins more than 270 public power utilities nationwide that hold the RP3 designation. PWC earned the award’s highest designation- Diamond Level- for the 5th time in the award’s history and is one among an elite number of utilities that have earned the Diamond Level designation five or more times.

The RP3 designation, which lasts for three years, recognizes public power utilities that demonstrate outstanding practices and utility-wide commitment to safe and reliable delivery of electricity. PWC received a 100% score in the award criteria for reliability, safety, workforce development, 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 and has received the  Diamond Level designation each time it has applied.
