Provo City Power prides itself on the reliability of its power infrastructure and the delivery of power to the residents of Provo.
There are many federal guidelines for operating a power company, and to ensure this reliability and consistent delivery we must adhere to requirements from Western Electricity Coordinating Council (WECC), North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC), and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) .
This requires detailed documentation and communication with these organizations as well as other associated groups such as Rocky Mountain Power (RMP), or Utah Municipal Power Association (UMPA).
Board meetings are typically scheduled on the 1st Monday of every month with the rights to change schedules as deemed appropriate by the Chairman of the board. Responsibilities include advising the administration and Municipal Council on Power Department issues.
