[ARCHIVED] ERMU Recognized as a Smart Energy Provider

2019 Elk River SEP Certificate 2019-21Elk River Municipal Utilities (ERMU) has earned a Smart Energy Provider (SEP) designation from the American Public Power Association for demonstrating commitment to and proficiency in energy efficiency and environmental initiatives that focus on low-cost, quality, safe, and reliable electric service.

The SEP designation recognizes public power utilities for demonstrating leading practices in energy efficiency, environmental and sustainability initiatives, and the customer experience.  Earning this designation was made possible through cooperation between ERMU and the City of Elk River, who have been sustainability partners since 1997 with the Energy City Commission.

“The SEP designation recognizes a commitment to do the right thing in a way that balances policy with the values of our community,” said Tom Sagstetter, Conservation & Key Accounts Manager for Elk River Municipal Utilities. “ERMU and the City take a lot of pride in the programs we offer that help our customers save money and reduce our collective impact on the environment. It’s an honor to be recognized as a first-rate utility when it comes to smart energy.”

This is the first year the Association has offered the SEP designation, which lasts for two years. ERMU joins more than 60 public power utilities nationwide that received the inaugural SEP designation.
