Fairport Municipal Commission has received national recognition for achieving exceptional electric reliability in 2020. The recognition comes from the American Public Power Association, a trade group that represents more than 2,000 not-for-profit, community-owned electric utilities.
The Association helps electric utilities track power outage and restoration data through its subscription-based eReliability Tracker service and then compares the data to national statistics tracked by the U.S. Energy Information Administration for all types of electric utilities.
Nationwide, the average public power customer has their lights out for less than half the time, compared to other types of utilities. Fairport Electric's average outage time for 2020 was 18 minutes, excluding major events. This is in comparison to all U.S. utilities' average outage time of 139 minutes.
