Is the RP3 Designation for you?

154 of the nation’s more than 2,000 public power utilities have earned RP3 recognition from APPA including, in 2010, Marietta Power - the first public power utility in Georgia to earn such a designation. 

While the application process is not easy, ECG communities are well equipped through existing initiatives to tackle the endeavor.  ECG recently held a webinar in conjunction with APPA to review the RP3 application process and allow interested parties to ask questions.  Click Here to download a copy of the webinar powerpoint presentation.  Links to RP3 cocuments and the APPA website can be found on the left-hand side of this page.

Congratulations to Marietta Power, an RP3 Electric Utility

Marietta Power has become the first city-owned utility in the state of Georgia to receive the RP3 designation from the American Public Power Association (APPA).

RP3 (Reliable Public Power Provider) is a program that APPA designed to encourage public power systems to demonstrate basic proficiency in four important disciplines: reliability, safety, workforce development and system improvement.

Marietta Power Electrical Director, Tom Bell, pioneered the effort for Marietta to earn this distinction: “RP3 is a process, not just a program,” he said. “It creates an avenue for continuous improvement.”

Among the many benefits of the RP3 process, this label makes a city-owned utility more reliable for its residents and more attractive to economic developers. RP3 gives an infrastructure and measurable goal for utilities that want to ensure that they are safe and reliable.

ECG wants to facilitate municipally owned utilities’ efforts to achieve the RP3 status.   On Wednesday, May 19, we co-hosted a Webinar with APPA staff to explore some of the qualifications and goals that RP3 requires.  If you would like to download a copy of the Webinar presentation - click here.
