Utility gets national recognition
Keys Energy Services (KEYS) is one of 176 of more than 2,000 public power utilities to earn the moniker of a Reliable Public Power Provider from the American Public Power Association. The recognition is given to utilities that provide consumers with the highest degree of reliable and safe electric service. Brent McKinney, chair of APPA's review panel, presented the award during the association's technical conference in Ohio.
The distinction recognizes utilities that demonstrate proficiency in four areas: reliability, safety, training and system improvement.
This is the third consecutive year that KEYS has earned the distinction, said CEO Lynne Tejeda.
