Henderson Municipal Power & Light (HMP&L) has received national recognition for achieving exceptional electric reliability in 2021. The recognition comes from the American Public Power Association (APPA), a trade group that represents more than 2,000 not-for-profit, community-owned electric utilities.
APPA tracks electric utility power outage and restoration data and once a year compares this data to national statistics tracked by the U.S. Energy Information Administration for all types of electric utilities. Nationwide, the average public power customer has their lights out for less than half the amount of time that customers of other types of utilities do.
This year APPA commended HMP&L for achieving exceptional electric reliability. HMP&L’s reliability data was compared to the national reliability data and HMP&L was in the top quartile (25%) of utilities for System Average Interruption Duration Index (SAIDI). The SAIDI is the average electrical interruption duration in minutes for a given period. HMP&L had a SAIDI value of 20 minutes compared to the national average SAIDI value of 136 minutes for the calendar year of 2021.
The recognition award was presented by General Manager, Brad Bickett, to Transmission & Distribution Line Supervisor, Matt Deibler, and Transmission & Distribution Manager, Glen Leslie, at the Utility Commission Meeting on April 25, 2022. HMP&L is proud to receive this recognition. It is a testament to the hard work and support of all our staff and commission to ensure that we keep the lights on in Henderson.
