Prague Power Recertified in CUP Program

Prague Council meeting 2014 (2)

During the City of Prague’s City Council meeting on February 10th, Prague Mayor Cliff Bryant, Jr. was presented with a $20,000 check by David W. Osburn, OMPA General Manager, on behalf of the Oklahoma Municipal Power Authority’s (OMPA) Board of Directors, recertifying Prague Power as a Competitive Utility. Drake N. Rice, OMPA Director of Member Services, also attended the presentation. 

OMPA’s Competitive Utility Program (CUP) is a voluntary program, started in 1995, that provides the 39 member cities with a way to evaluate and improve the operation of their electric utilities, and make them better able to compete in the electric utility industry.  This program provides two types of reward – recognition in the form of certification, and financial rewards, which includes the check for $20,000.

“For the citizens of Prague, CUP certification means that your community-owned electric utility is committed to excellence in its operation and delivery of safe, reliable and competitively priced electricity.  Prague Electric is here to be of service and help to all of its consumers,” said Jim Greff, City Manager.

The Oklahoma Municipal Power Authority (OMPA) is a wholesale power company owned by 39 municipal electric utilities. OMPA provides economies of scale in power generation and related services to support community-owned electric utilities.  The members of OMPA serve approximately 250,000 Oklahomans.
