CFU Earns Smart Energy Provider Designation

Cedar Falls Utilities has earned a Smart Energy Provider (SEP) designation from the American Public Power Association for demonstrating a commitment to and proficiency in energy efficiency, distributed generation, and environmental initiatives that support the goal of providing safe, reliable, low-cost, and sustainable electric service. 

The SEP designation recognizes public power utilities for demonstrating leading practices in four key disciplines: smart energy program structure; energy efficiency and distributed energy resources programs; environmental and sustainability initiatives; and customer experience. 

CFU joins more than 90 public power utilities nationwide that hold the SEP designation.

“SEP-designated utilities have demonstrated their leadership in smart energy programs and services,” said Kris Sellstrom, chair of APPA’s Energy Innovation Committee. 

“This designation celebrates utilities that are committed to serving their customers while taking the extra step to plan for the future. Communities served by utilities that have earned the SEP designation should be proud of their utility’s accomplishments.”

“We are honored to be recognized as a utility at the cutting edge of smart energy best practices,” said Matt Hein, CFU Energy Services Manager. 

“This SEP designation represents our dedication to offering programs that keep our power affordable, support energy efficiency in our community, and reduce our environmental impact.”
