MONCKS CORNER, S.C. — Santee Cooper has earned the Reliable Public Power Provider (RP3®) designation from the American Public Power Association for providing reliable and safe electric service. Santee Cooper has maintained the RP3® designation since 2006, the first year the designation was awarded.

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. Criteria include sound business practices and a utility-wide commitment to safe and reliable delivery of electricity.

“Receiving an RP3 designation is a great honor and demonstrates a utility’s commitment to implementing industry best practices in utility operations,” said Aaron Haderle, chair of the Associations RP3 Review Panel. “RP3 utilities are consistently looking to improve their workforce, system reliability, and safety to serve their communities better.”

“Our reliability continues to be ranked among the best in the country,” said Mike Poston, chief customer officer at Santee Cooper. “Our teams work extremely hard and take pride in keeping the lights on for our customers and our communities.”
