PERKASIE – American Municipal Power, Inc. (AMP) announced that Perkasie Borough has received a Certificate of Excellence in Reliability from the American Public Power Association (APPA).

The Certificate of Excellence in Reliability recognizes utilities that ranked in the top 25 nationally in reliability rates in 2023, as measured by U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) data. APPA helps public energy systems track outage and restoration data through the eReliability Tracker service and compares the data to national statistics maintained by the EIA. AMP will cover the cost of subscribing to the eReliability Tracker service for all its members, according to an AMP press release.

“Perkasie’s commitment to reliable electricity supply is commendable,” said Michelle Palmer, AMP Vice President of Technical Services and Compliance. “This recognition demonstrates the Perkasie Borough Electric Department’s commitment to serving its customers.”
