Independence Power and Light has earned for the second consecutive three year period the Reliable Public Power Provider Diamond designation from the American Public Power Association for providing reliable and safe electric service. This is the highest designation a power company can receive and represents many hours of data collection and review in preparation to submit an application.
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 include sound business practices and a utility-wide commitment to safe and reliable delivery of electricity. Independence Power and Light joins more than 220 public power utilities nationwide that hold the RP3 designation.
The American Public Power Association has offered the RP3 designation for 15 years now. The 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.
