HPS Energy Recognized as a Reliable Public Power Provider

HPS RP3 2017

Homestead Public Services Energy (Homestead Energy) has earned a Reliable Public Power Provider (RP3)® Diamond Level designation from the American Public Power Association for providing reliable and safe electric service. David Lynch, Assistant Director of Utility Operations at Marquette Board of Light and Power, Michigan and chair of the Association’s RP3 Review Panel, presented the designations on May 8 during the Association’s annual Engineering & Operations Technical Conference held in San Antonio, Texas. 


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. Homestead Energy joins more than 235 public power utilities nationwide that hold the prestigious RP3 designation.  Only about 10% of the nation’s public power utilities earn the right to the RP3 designation, with only about 5% achieving the Diamond Level.


“Utilities that have earned an RP3 designation demonstrate public power’s emphasis on achieving leading practices and providing a high level of service to communities,” said Lynch. “We are proud to welcome all utilities earning this recognition for the first time and to those renewing their designations.”


“We’re honored to be recognized as a Reliable Public Power Provider,” said Barbara Quiñones, Director of HPS Energy. “We are especially proud to have received the highest RP3 designation of Diamond Level.  Our staff works very hard to provide reliable service and RP3 recognizes our commitment to serving the community.”


The American Public Power Association has offered the RP3 designation for 12 years now. The Association is the voice of not-for-profit, community-owned utilities that power 49 million people in 2,000 towns and cities nationwide. The Association advocates and advises on electricity policy, technology, trends, training, and operations.
