IPL receives national recognition for reliability

Independence Power and Light is one of 110 public power utilities to recently earn the Reliable Public Power Provider (RP3) designation from the American Public Power Association for providing reliable and safe electric service.

IPL received the Diamond Level - the highest level.

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.

Other Missouri communities with public power utilities also holding the RP3 designation include:

Diamond Level: Carthage and Springfield

Platinum Level: Fulton, Jackson, Kirkwood, Nixa, Columbia, Hannibal and Marshall

Gold Level: Harrisonville, Macon and Rolla.

This is the 12th year the RP3 recognition has been offered.
