Marshfield Utilities Receives Recognition for Reliable Service

Marshfield – Marshfield Utilities has once again earned a Reliable Public Power Provider (RP3)® Diamond (highest possible) designation from the American Public Power Association for providing reliable and safe electric service. Aaron Haderle, Manager of Transmission and Distribution Operations at ‎Kissimmee Utility Authority, Florida and chair of the Association’s RP3 Review Panel, presented the designations on April 1 during the Association’s annual Engineering & Operations Technical Conference held in Colorado Springs, Colorado.

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. Marshfield Utilities joins more than 270 public power utilities nationwide that hold the RP3 designation.

“Receiving an RP3 designation is a great honor. It demonstrates that a utility strives for a high level of service and is constantly looking to improve,” said Haderle. “Aside from demonstrating reliability, these designated utilities have shown commitment to system improvement, safety, and developing a strong and sustainable workforce.”

“This is a great honor,” said Nicolas Kumm, General Manager of Marshfield Utilities. “We take a lot of pride in the work we do to power our community. It’s nice to be recognized as among the ‘best of the best’ on a national level.”
