omu 300OWENSBORO, Ky. (3/26/13) – Owensboro Municipal Utilities (OMU) is one of 184 of the nation’s more than 2,000 public power utilities to earn Reliable Public Power Provider (RP3®)recognition from the American Public Power Association for providing consumers with the highest degree of reliable and safe electric service. Brent McKinney, manager, electric transmission and distribution at City Utilities of Springfield, Mo., and chair of APPA’s RP3 Review Panel, presented the designees on March 25 during the association’s annual Engineering & Operations Technical Conference held in Kissimmee, Fla.

This is the fourth RP3® honor for OMU. OMU achieved platinum status for its fourth award, a move up from its gold designation.

The RP3 designation recognizes public power utilities that demonstrate proficiency in four key disciplines: reliability, safety, workforce development and system improvement. Criteria within each category are based on sound business practices and represent a utility-wide commitment to safe and reliable delivery of electricity.

“RP3 utilities are shining examples of reliable and forward-thinking public power utilities,” said McKinney, “These 90 designees should be extremely proud of this accomplishment and what it means for their communities.”

“Receiving the RP3 designation means a lot to us,” said OMU General Manager Terry Naulty. “It’s an honor to be recognized on a national level for the work we are doing here locally in Owensboro.”

This is the eighth year that RP3 recognition has been offered. APPA is the national organization representing more than 2,000 not-for-profit, community- and state- owned electric utilities. It is located in Washington, D.C.
