American Municipal Power, Inc. (AMP) congratulated Oak Harbor Public Power for being awarded a Platinum Level designation as a Reliable Public Power Provider (RP3). The recognition was presented by the American Public Power Association (APPA) during the association’s annual Engineering & Operations Technical Conference conducted virtually on March 23-24.
The RP3 designation, which lasts for three years, recognizes public power utilities that demonstrate proficiency in four key disciplines: reliability, safety, workforce development and system improvement. Criteria includes sound business practices and a utility-wide commitment to safe and reliable delivery of electricity.
Oak Harbor received the RP3 Platinum Level designation, awarded to utilities that successfully meet 90 to 97 percent of the RP3 program criteria.
“Through the RP3 program, utilities have a chance to learn, grow and improve, as well as serve as an example for others striving for excellence,” said Michelle Palmer, AMP vice president of technical services and compliance. “AMP members with this designation have proven that they are committed to running a superior public power utility by implementing industry best practices. We commend the efforts of Oak Harbor Public Power and sent congratulations for this recognition.”
