Village of Versailles receives national recognition


COLUMBUS — American Municipal Power, Inc. (AMP) is proud to announce that the Village of Versailles received Reliable Public Power Provider (RP3) Platinum designation and the Certificate of Excellence in Reliability, both of which are presented by the American Public Power Association (APPA).

The RP3 program recognizes utilities that demonstrate high proficiency in reliability, safety, workforce development and system improvement. There are three levels of designations, Diamond, Platinum and Gold. Versailles’ Platinum designation is for a three-year period starting in 2020. Criteria within each of the four RP3 areas are based upon sound business practices and recognized industry-leading practices.

The Certificate of Excellence in Reliability recognizes utilities that placed in the top 25 percentile of reliability nationwide in 2019, as measured against the U.S. Energy Information Administration’s (EIA) data. The APPA helps public power systems track outage and restoration data through its eReliability Tracker service and compares the data to national statistics tracked by the EIA. AMP covers the cost of subscription to the eReliability Tracker service for all of its members.

“Versailles’ commitment to reliability, safety and workforce excellence is commendable,” said Jolene Thompson, AMP president and CEO. “This recognition shows how dedicated Village of Versailles Utilities is to serving its customers.”
