The American Public Power Association (APPA), based in the Washington, D.C. region, is the service organization for the nation’s more than 2,000 community-owned electric utilities. Collectively, these utilities serve more than 47 million Americans. APPA was created in 1940 as a nonprofit, non-partisan organization to advance the public policy interests of its members and their consumers, and to provide member services to ensure adequate, reliable electricity at a reasonable price with the proper protection of the environment. Hometown Connections is the utility services subsidiary of APPA.
Most of the members of the Texas Public Power Association are also members of APPA. Be sure to take full advantage of an APPA membership. Whether you work for a public power utility or provide a service or product for the electric utility marketplace, membership in APPA provides access to unparalleled electric utility industry information resources; educational and training opportunities designed specifically for public power professionals; access to staff experts on a variety of technical, regulatory and operational issues impacting public power; and much more.
