ERMU Receives National Recognition!

Elk River Municipal Utilities (ERMU) has received national recognition for achieving exceptional electric reliability in 2016. 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.

APPA helps members track outage and restoration data through its subscription-based eReliability Tracker service and then compares the data to national statistics tracked by the U.S. Energy Information Administration for all types of electric utilities. 

"This recognition helps demonstrate public power's commitment to reliable electric service." said the Association's Senior Vice President of Engineering Services, Michael Hyland. "Public power has a strong track record of reliability.  Nationwide, the average public power customer has their lights out for less than half the time, compared to other types of utilities," said Hyland.

"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."
