American Public Power Association (APPA) Reliable Public Power Provider (RP3®) Platinum Designation
The City of Hamilton Electric Department has been awarded the Reliable Public Power Provider (RP3®) Platinum Designation through the APPA since 2006. The City was most recently awarded the RP3® Platinum Designation in 2014. This current designation is valid for three years, from May 1, 2014 to April 30, 2017. Only 83 out of more than 2,000 municipal electric systems in the United States currently hold this designation.
The RP3® Platinum 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 electric service. According to the APPA, public utilities receiving the RP3® Platinum Designation exemplify the highest standard of utility operations, and are leading the way in providing reliable and safe electric service to their communities.
