Longmont Power and Communications has once again been recognized for its electric power performance.

LPC received its eighth consecutive Reliable Public Power Provider award from the American Public Power Association, placing it in Platinum status. 

The local utility first received the award in 2006, marking it as the first in Colorado to hold the title for reliability, safety, workforce development and system improvements, according to a news release from LPC. Over the eight award cycles — the award is presented every three years — LPC has held Platinum or Diamond ratings, which are the top two categories.

According to the city of Longmont, customers experience fewer and shorter electrical outages than a majority of U.S. utilities. 

“A typical LPC customer goes more than two years without seeing a power outage; those who did experience one typically saw the power come back on in less than an hour,” the news release stated. 

“Our customers expect the best from us, and for over 100 years we’ve worked hard to provide just that, supplying the power that our residents and businesses use to build a better Longmont,” said Darrell Hahn, LPC’s acting executive director. “We’re honored to have those efforts recognized by the APPA and proud to serve this growing and vibrant community.”
