Florence Utility Commission was among 143 public power utilities recently honored with a "certificate of excellence" for reliable performance by the American Public Power Association. This honor is determined by comparing public power utility outage records against nationwide data gathered by the US Energy Information Administration.
Florence utililized American Public Power Association's web-based subscription service, called eReliability Tracker. This tool lets utilities collect, categorize, and summarize their outages. Subscribing utilities use the eReliability Tracker Service to store their outage and restoration data and run reports throughout the year.
At the end of the year, the Association compares their data against national statistics from the US Energy Information Administration. View the full article here.
