We all work hard every day, and it’s good to receive some recognition for the outstanding job we do, day in and day out. Roy Jones, CEO of ElectriCites of North Carolina, attended our September Board of Commissioners meeting to present Greenville Utilities with Awards of Excellence in the following five categories: 

Grid Modernization - promote investment in public power communities’ electric distribution systems and in technology to ensure safety and reliability, and exceed customer expectations; 

Value of Public Power - communicate the value of electric system ownership to key stakeholders; 

Wholesale Power Cost - provide competitive and stable wholesale electric rates that meet the power supply need of Power Agency Members; 

Workforce Planning and Development - promote a workforce plan to attract, develop, and retain the necessary talent to provide safe, reliable power and lead public power forward; and 

Continuous Improvement - constantly review and enhance all aspects of public power, focus on cost reduction, and increase efficiencies in current and future operations. 

“The commitment and dedication that Greenville Utilities and all of North Carolina’s public power providers demonstrate to their communities is always impressive,” said ElectriCities CEO Roy Jones. “I’m proud of them for continuing to find ways to deliver better service and more value to the Greenville region while meeting the challenges of the past few years head-on.”
