Piqua Power System receives national recognition

PIQUA — American Municipal Power, Inc. (AMP) congratulates the Piqua Power System for being awarded a Diamond Level designation as a Reliable Public Power Provider (RP3).

The recognition was presented by the American Public Power Association (APPA) during the association’s annual Engineering & Operations Technical Conference conducted virtually, March 23-24.

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 includes sound business practices and a utility-wide commitment to safe and reliable delivery of electricity.

The Piqua Power System received the RP3 Diamond Level (highest level) designation, awarded to utilities that successfully meet 98-100 percent of the RP3 program criteria. This is Piqua’s fifth Diamond Level RP3 Designation (fourth consecutive), in addition to twice receiving the Platinum Level RP3 Designation.

“Through the RP3 program, utilities have a chance to learn, grow and improve, as well as serve as an example for others striving for excellence,” said Michelle Palmer, AMP vice president of technical services and compliance. “AMP members with this designation have proven that they are committed to running a superior public power utility by implementing industry best practices. We commend the efforts of the Piqua Power System and send congratulations for this recognition.”
