Painesville Electric Honored with RP3 Gold Status

The Painesville Municipal Electric System has earned the national distinction as a Reliable Public Power Provider (RP3) from the American Public Power Association for providing reliable and safe electric service to our customers. 


The Association’s RPprogram is based on industry-recognized leading practices in four important disciplines:

  • Reliability
  • Safety
  • Workforce Development
  • System Improvement


An RPdesignation is a sign of a utility's dedication to operating an efficient, safe, and reliable distribution system. Being recognized by the RPprogram demonstrates to community leaders, governing board members, suppliers, and service providers a utility’s commitment to its employees, customers and community. Currently 274 of the nation's more than 2,000 public power utilities hold an RPdesignation.
