Award recognizes utilities that focus on smart and sustainable energy practices.
Mason PUD 3 received an honorable designation from the American Public Power Association for demonstrating a commitment to and proficiency in energy efficiency, distributed generation, and environmental initiatives that support the goal of providing safe, reliable, economical, and sustainable electric service.
The Smart Energy Provider (SEP) designation, which lasts for two years, is held by fewer than 100 of the nation’s more than 2,000 public power utilities nationwide.
In Mason County, not only are these smart energy strategies part of Mason PUD 3’s mission, vision and values, the PUD has implemented several programs over the years to show our commitment to our customers, our community, and our environment. The SEP Application assesses utility commitment and practices across a handful of disciplines: Smart energy program planning, energy efficiency programs, distributed generation, environmental sustainability programs, and customer communication and education.
“We are proud to be recognized as a utility at the forefront of smart energy best practices,” said Annette Creekpaum, manager of Mason PUD 3. “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.”.pictured: Koral Miller, PUD 3's Energy Services Manager, displays the Smart Energy Provider award.
