For the second year in a row the City of Moundridge has achieved a 99.99% electrical system reliability rating. This is part of the city’s effort to be recognized as one of the most reliable utility providers in the country. The City is working towards the RP3 designation from the American Public Power Association. The RP3 program demonstrates industry-recognized leading practices for public power utilities in four important disciplines:

  • Reliability
  • Safety
  • Workforce Development
  • System Improvement

The American Public Power Association members include approximately 2,000 public power utilities that provide electricity to 49 million people in 49 states.

For the past two years in 2017 and 2018 the City of Moundridge had an average system availability time of 99.99%. This means the City Electrical service was only down .01% of the time in both years.

The Customer Average Interruption Duration Index shows the Average Customer was without service a total of 46.01 minutes in 2018.

The City of Moundridge purchases electrical power from the McPherson BPU and distributes it to its local customers through an electrical system that is completely owned by the citizens of Moundridge, operated and maintained by the City of Moundridge and their staff with decisions being made right here in Moundridge.

The city is in the process of upgrading the older parts of the electric system. This is an ongoing project spanning over several years.
