FPUA is proud to be designated as a Reliable Public Power Provider (RP3) by the American Public Power Association. In 2007, we were awarded the diamond category. The utility that receives the diamond designation must successfully meet 100 percent of the defined criteria.
The RP3 program designates four specific areas to measure a utility's adequacy in providing system proficiency. Reliability represents 30 percent of the total points required, safety and training each represent 25 percent and system improvement makes up the remaining 20 percent.
We service approximately 27,000 electric customers providing about 45,000 megawatt hours of power per month.
Although our electric service is extremely reliable with few outages, if you do experience a power outage call 466-1600 and press 1 to speak with someone about the problem.
