APPA Honors CFU with National System Achievement Award

Posted on Wednesday, June 22, 2016

The American Public Power Association (APPA) honored CFU with its national System Achievement Award last month.

APPA’s System Achievement Award honors member utilities for sustained excellence in operations and customer service. Only three of more than 2,000 APPA member utilities received the System Achievement Award this year.

APPA recognized CFU’s sustained work toward service improvements, including:

  • Addition of cost effective solar energy completed this year.
  • Switch to LED street lights throughout the community.
  • Launch of improved outage reporting tools for customers, including a live online outage map and free smart phone app for reporting outages.
  • Completion of reliability upgrades that have reduced power outages. These include accelerated undergrounding of electric lines from 2010-2014; smart meter installation in our rural electric territory; distribution system automation projects.
  • Addition of a new electric substation that is currently under construction.
