Waunakee Utilities has earned a Smart Energy Provider (SEP) designation from the American Public Power Association for demonstrating commitment to and proficiency in energy efficiency, distributed generation, and environmental initiatives that support a goal of providing low-cost, quality, safe, and reliable electric service.
The SEP designation, which lasts for two years (December 1st, 2019 to November 30th, 2021) recognizes public power utilities for demonstrating leading practices in four key disciplines: smart energy program structure; energy efficiency and distributed energy programs; environmental and sustainability initiatives; and the customer experience.
This is the first year the Association has offered the SEP designation. Waunakee Utilities joins more than 60 public power utilities nationwide that received the inaugural SEP designation.
“We’re honored to be recognized for our efforts to support our community’s responsible energy use,” said Tim Herlitzka, General Manager of Waunakee Utilities. “We take a lot of pride in the programs we offer that help our customers save money and reduce our collective footprint on the environment. It’s encouraging to be recognized as a best-of-category utility when it comes to smart energy.”
