Salt River Project once again has earned a Smart Energy Provider (SEP) designation from the American Public Power Association (APPA) for demonstrating its commitment to and proficiency in energy efficiency, distributed generation, and environmental initiatives that support the goal of providing safe, reliable, low-cost, and sustainable electric service.

Matt Hein, Energy Services Manager of Cedar Falls Utilities in Cedar Falls, Iowa and chair of the Energy Innovation Committee, presented the designations on October 26 in Scottsdale, Arizona during APPA’s annual Customer Connections Conference.

“Utilities that earn the SEP designations are going the extra mile beyond providing electricity for their communities,” said Hein. “This designation celebrates utilities that are committed to serving their customers with leading smart energy programs and energy services. These communities should be proud that their utilities are focused on providing excellent service while planning for the future.”

The SEP designation, which lasts for two years (December 1, 2021 to November 30, 2023), 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 customer experience. SRP earns the designation for the second consecutive time, joining more than 90 public power utilities nationwide that hold the SEP designation.

“We are proud to be recognized as a utility at the forefront of smart energy best practices,” said Kelly Barr, Associate General Manager, Chief Strategy, Corporate Services and Sustainability Executive. “Earning the SEP designation represents our dedication to offering programs that help our customers save money, reduce our collective environmental impact, and support our community’s responsible energy use. Our employees who work hard each day to be leaders in distributed generation, energy efficiency, environmental stewardship, renewable energy, and around the company can be proud of this recognition and all that it stands for.”
