JUST ANNOUNCED!  Harrisonville is Named a Reliable Public Power Provider by the APPA

The City of Harrisonville Electric Department has received the award for national recognition of Reliable Electric Operations from the American Public Power Association. Harrisonville is one of the 97 electric utilities to be so honored in 2015 of the nation’s over 2,000 public power utilities for the highest degree of reliable and safe electric services.
Keith Thomas, Electric Department Director accepted the award from the nation’s APPA 18-member review panel on May 18 during the Association’s Annual Engineering and Operations Technical Conference held in Sacramento, California.

“We’re honored to receive the RP3 designation,” said Mr. Thomas. “Our utility staff puts in a lot of hard work to serve our community. All of the current and previous Mayors, Aldermen, City Administrators and city hall staff contributed to the receipt of this award. RP3 represents a much appreciated recognition of this hard work.”

The RP3 designation recognizes public power utilities that demonstrate proficiency in four key disciplines: reliability, safety, workforce development, and system improvement. A total of 191 utilities nationwide have earned the RP3 designation.

Harrisonville is the only Missouri city in the metro area to earn the RP3 designation. Macon, Missouri was also honored with an RP3 award this year. Earlier recipients are the cities of Jackson, Kirkwood, Columbia, and Hannibal, Missouri as well as the Kansas City (KS) Board of Public Utilities.

Harrisonville purchases wholesale electric power from the Missouri Joint Municipal Electric Utility Commission (MJMEUC). MJMEUC is a separate governmental entity for the purpose of pooling the electric utility resources of the pool members and acquiring additional electric services as a separate entity, making possible more beneficial use of generating facilities and assuring better service in emergencies.

The Electric Division oversees the distribution of this power to retail customers within the city limits of Harrisonville. The City of Harrisonville currently serves approximately 4,744 electrical customers.
