Mason County PUD 3 took two awards in its utility class in the recently announced Northwest Public Power Association (NWPPA) Excellence in Communication awards. The awards were announced September 17. (The class includes utilities with 25,000 - 49,999 customers.)
The PUD 3 awards were:
• First place for its 2011 annual report.
• Third place for its brochure about the Johns Prairie operations center.
“Communications is a team sport,” said Joel Myer, public information and government relations manager. “The two awards are the result of great cooperation throughout the PUD to tell our story and keep customers informed about what we do for their benefit.”
Now in its 20th year, the Excellence in Communication contest recognized the top communication efforts of member utilities from throughout NWPPA’s service territory, which includes eight western states and two Canadian provinces.
This year, NWPPA received nearly 176 entries from 40 different utility and association members.
Mason County PUD 3 is a locally controlled public utility that provides electricity to nearly 33,000 customers in most of Mason County and small portions of Kitsap and Grays Harbor Counties. PUD 3 also provides wholesale telecommunications services through a fiber optic network.
