The City of Purcell was presented with a $20,000 check by the Oklahoma Municipal Power Authority during their council meeting November 6, recognizing the city for being officially recertified in the Competitive Utility Program (CUP) at the Gold Level.
OMPA is the city’s wholesale power supplier. Purcell’s recertification was approved by the OMPA board at its October meeting.
Following the board’s approval, a check was sent to the City of Purcell for $20,000. The city also qualified for two awards which will provide discounts on the power invoice from OMPA.
CUP is a voluntary program, started in 1995, that provides OMPA’s 42 members with a way to evaluate and improve the operation of their electric utility, and make them better able to compete in the electric utility industry.
The program provides two types of reward – recognition, in the form of certification and financial rewards, which include the check for $20,000.
Purcell was originally certified in the program in 2009. CUP-certified members can be recertified in the program every two years, and they are eligible for the $20,000 award each year.
Andie Millsap is Purcell’s CUP Coordinator.
