American Public Power Association Designation Granted for 2015

 (March 14, 2016) — Berlin’s Electric Utility has received national recognition for achieving exceptional electric reliability in 2015, Mayor Gee Williams announced at town’s most recent council meeting Monday.

The recognition comes from the American Public Power Association (APPA), an organization in Washington, D.C., that represents more than 2,000 not-for-profit, community-owned electric utilities such as Berlin Electric.

“This honor recognizes utilities that are statistically thriving when it comes to reliability,” said APPA Senior Vice President, Engineering Services Michael Hyland.  Nationwide, the average outage duration per customer for utilities performing in the top 25 percent for reliability of service ranged from zero to 53 minutes.  Berlin’s average outage duration was 17 minutes.

APPA took Berlin Electric’s outage duration data compiled through its “eReliability Tracker Service” and compared it to the outage duration data for other electric utilities gathered by the Energy Information Administration—an independent agency that collects, analyzes and disseminates national energy data.

“We work hard to keep the lights on day in and day out,” said Tim Lawrence, Director at Berlin Electric. “It’s nice to see that hard work pay off with this kind of recognition.”
