SEP Designation

LELWD Recognized As A Smart Energy Provider

LELWD has been nationally recognized for a second time as a Smart Energy Provider (SEP) from the American Public Power Association for demonstrating a commitment to and proficiency in energy efficiency, distributed generation, and environmental initiatives that support the goal of providing safe, reliable, low-cost, and sustainable electric service.

The American Public Power Association recognizes public power utilities for demonstrating leading practices in four key disciplines: smart energy program structure; energy efficiency and distributed energy programs; environmental and sustainability initiatives; and customer experience. 

The SEP Designation Award

The SEP designation lasts for two years and LELWD was first designated as a smart energy provider in 2019, and had to reapply to hold the designation.

As pictured in 2019, LELWD’s Energy & Sustainability Manager, Connor Reardon (center), accepted the award from Christine Van Dokkumburg, then-Chair of the American Public Power Association’s Energy Services Committee and Planning Analyst for Holland Board of Public Works in Michigan (left), and Alex Hofmann, then-Senior Director of Energy & Environmental Services for the American Public Power Association (right).
