November 17, 2022—The Kerrville Public Utility Board (KPUB) has been recognized by the American Public Power Association (APPA) as the recipient of a national award for its public power communications for the third year in a row.
KPUB was honored with APPA’s Excellence in Public Power Communications award in the print and design category for its newly launched KPUB Energy Hub newsletter report. The awards were presented this week at APPA’s Customer Connections Conference in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
“As communicators, our job is to share the many benefits our community reaps by being powered by a not-for-profit, public power utility company,” said Allison Bueché, KPUB Director of Customer and Community Relations. “Our new KPUB Energy Hub is one of the numerous ways we connect with our customers and tell our public power story to our community. We are honored to be nationally recognized for showcasing the important work our utility does in the Kerrville area.”
Of the more than 2,000 not-for-profit public power utilities across the nation, only 49 earned this prestigious award from APPA, with just six of them being Texas utilities. To learn more, visit APPA’s website at publicpower.org.
