(SHELTON, WA) -- Mason PUD 3 has been named to the inaugural class of the “Smart Energy Provider” program by American Public Power Association.

PUD 3 received the designation along with 67 utilities across the nation for its commitment and expertise in energy efficiency, encouragement of distributed energy generation, customer education and communications, and environmental programs that support the goal of providing low-cost, quality, safe, and reliable electric service.

“I’m pleased to see that Mason PUD 3’s mission, vision, and core values dovetail so perfectly with the Smart Energy Provider program,” said Koral Miller, PUD 3 conservation manager. “Our employees strive every day to follow our core values of being solutions-oriented, communicating with our customers, striving for reliable and economical service, and being socially responsible,”

“Competing with other utilities allows the PUD 3 to benchmark its efforts against hundreds of other organizations,” said Annette Creekpaum, PUD 3 manger. “Recognition of our efforts affirms our work to provide the best service possible to our customers and community.’

“This designation highlights utilities that are stepping up to deliver top-notch programs and services to their customers,” said Chris Van Dokkumburg, planning analyst at ‎Holland Board of Public Works (Michigan) and Chair of APPA’s Energy Services Committee. “These utilities are going beyond ‘keeping the lights on,’ and their communities should be proud.”

Other Washington state utilities receiving the Smart Energy Provider designation are Clark Public Utilities, Snohomish PUD, and Tacoma Power.

Mason PUD 3 has won 14 consecutive Government Finance Officer awards for excellence in financial reporting; the PUD received the Northwest Public Power Association’s Tom Hougan award for overall excellence in communications; the utility has a Diamond Level designation from the American Public Power Association as one of the nation’s Reliable Public Power Providers; PUD 3 placed first in its category in the Northwest Public Power Association’s 2018 Safety Contest; the PUD received the 2018 American Public Power Association’s Safety Award of Excellence.

Mason PUD 3 provides electricity to nearly 34,000 customers in most of Mason County and small portions of Kitsap and Grays Harbor Counties. The PUD also operates a wholesale fiber optic telecommunications network, which supports the operation of its electric distribution services.

The American Public Power Association is the voice of not-for-profit, community-owned utilities that power 2,000 towns and cities nationwide.
