RP3 Program Certification

In March 2017, the American Public Power Association (APPA) awarded the Morristown Power System (MPS) with the Diamond Level certification of the RP3 Program for Reliable Public Power performance which benchmarks public power systems across the United States. MUS scored a perfect 100 of a possible 100 points in the evaluation indicating a very high rating when comparing MUS against other municipal power systems. The program evaluates municipal power systems in four major areas: Reliability, Safety, Workforce Development and System Improvement.

This is the second consecutive time MUS has achieved the Diamond Level and has held the RP3 certification since 2005. While the APPA judges power systems, this certification permeates programs across all MUS divisions and our employees.  The RP3 recognition gives citizens of Morristown a reason to be proud of their local power company and an assurance that they live in an electric service area committed to reliable public power.
