Moorhead Public Service Receives National Recognition for Reliable Electric Operations

Washington, D.C.—Moorhead Public Service earned the Reliable Public Power Provider (RP3)® designation from American Public Power Association (APPA) for providing reliable and safe electric service. Aaron Haderle, Manager of Transmission and Distribution Operations at ‎Kissimmee Utility Authority, Florida and chair of APPA’s RP3 Review Panel, presented the designations during APPA’s annual Engineering & Operations Technical Conference held in Colorado Springs, Colorado, on April 1, 2019.


The three-year RP3 designation 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. Moorhead Public Service is one of 48 utilities that earned the designation in 2019. In total, 275 of the more than 2,000 public power utilities nation-wide hold the
RP3 designation.


“We’re honored to receive the RP3 designation,” said Bill Schwandt, General Manager of Moorhead Public Service. “Our utility staff puts in a lot of hard work to serve the community of Moorhead. RP3 represents a much appreciated recognition of this hard work.”


This will be the 14th year that the RP3 recognition has been offered. A full list of designees is available at: www.Publicpower.org/rp3-designated-utilities.


APPA is the national organization representing more than 2,000 not-for-profit, community and state-owned electric utilities. APPA is located in Arlington, Virginia.
