Town of Front Royal Recognized as Reliable Public Power Provider

RP3 Award

The Town of Front Royal’s Department of Energy Services has earned a Platinum-level Reliable Public Power Provider (RP3)® designation from the American Public Power Association for providing reliable and safe electric service. 


The RP3 designation, which lasts for three years, recognizes public power utilities that demonstrate proficiency in four key disciplines: reliability, safety, workforce development, and system improvement. Criteria include sound business practices and a utility-wide commitment to safe and reliable delivery of electricity. Front Royal joins 274 public power utilities nationwide that hold the RP3 designation.


“Over the last year we’ve seen the vital importance of running a reliable and safe utility,” says Aaron Haderle, Chair of APPA’s RP3 Review Panel and Manager of Transmission and Distribution Operations at ‎Kissimmee Utility Authority, Florida. “The utilities receiving the RPdesignation have proven that they are committed to running a top-notch public power utility by implementing industry best practices.” 


“We couldn’t be prouder to be honored with this designation,” said Mary Ellen Lynn, Interim Director of the Energy Services Department. “It recognizes the entire Energy Services Team for the hard work and dedication required to power our community.”


The American Public Power Association has offered the RP3 designation for 15 years now. APPA is the voice of not-for-profit, community-owned utilities that power 49 million people in 2,000 towns and cities nationwide. APPA advocates and advises on electricity policy, technology, trends, training, and operations.
