Danvers Electric Division has earned a Reliable Public Power Provider (RP3)® Platinum-level designation from the American Public Power Association for providing reliable and safe electric service.
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.
“I think over the last year or so, we’ve seen the vital importance of running a reliable and safe utility,” says Aaron Haderle, Chair of APPA’s RP3 Review Panel and Manager of Transmission and Distribution Operations at Kissimmee Utility Authority, Florida. “The utilities receiving the RP3 designation have proven that they are committed to running a top-notch public power utility by implementing industry best practices.”
“We couldn’t be prouder to be honored with this designation,” said David Lane, Director of Public Works and Utilities for the Town of Danvers. “This is the culmination of hard work from people who care about Danvers and our customers. While this is a fantastic award that highlights the many accomplishments of the division, Danvers Electric is committed to continuing to look for ways to improve service to our customers.”
