Hudson Public Power has received national recognition for achieving exceptional electric reliability in 2019. The recognition comes from the American Public Power Association, a trade group that represents more than 2,000 not-for-profit, community-owned electric utilities.
The Association helps electric utilities track power outage and restoration data through its subscription-based eReliability Tracker service and then compares the data to national statistics tracked by the U.S. Energy Information Administration for all types of electric utilities.
“Community-owned public power utilities have an excellent record when it comes to reliability,” said the Association’s Senior Director of Energy and Environmental Services Alex Hofmann. “These utilities are the best of the best when it comes to keeping the lights on in their communities.”
Nationwide, the average public power customer has their lights out for less than half the time, compared to other types of utilities.
“We are proud to receive this recognition. It is a testament to the hard work of all our staff to ensure that we keep Hudson powered,” said Kevin Powell, Hudson Assistant Public Works Director - Utilities.
According to the reliability data collected by the U.S. Energy Information Administration, Hudson Public Power is in the top 25% of utilities for the System Average Interruption Duration Index (SAIDI) which qualified HPP for the 2019 Certificate of Excellence in Reliability.
