The American Public Power Association (APPA) recently recognized Paducah Power System with its most prestigious Reliability award honor. APPA is the voice of not-for-profit, community-owned utilities that power 2,000 towns and cities nationwide.
APPA gave Paducah Power its Excellence in Reliability award. 200 of the 2000 utilities in APPA received the honor. PPS had a 99.9928% reliability rate for 2020. That means the average PPS customer had 38 minutes of outage time last year, while the national average is 139 minutes. Assistant General Manager Rick Windhorst attributed the high reliability rate to extensive maintenance measures, data reviews that indicate potential equipment issues, and rapid response times.
