ERMU Receives National Recognition

Elk River Municipal Utilities (ERMU) has received national recognition for achieving exceptional electric reliability in 2015. The recognition comes from the American Public Power Association (APPA)—a trade group in Washington, D.C., that represents more than 2,000 not-for-profit, community-owned electric utilities such as ERMU.

“This honor recognizes utilities that are statistically thriving when it comes to reliability,” said APPA Senior Vice President, Engineering Services Michael Hyland.

APPA took ERMU’s reliability data compiled through its eReliability Tracker Service and compared it to the top quartile of system outage duration from national reliability data collected by the Energy Information Administration—an independent agency that collects, analyzes and disseminates national energy data. 

"As our community has grown and the number or our customers has increased, our reliability to those we serve has remained excellent," said Troy Adams, General Manager at ERMU. "We're proud to be recognized for our utilities continuing commitment to provide safe and reliable electric utility service."
