The City of Hudson was recently honored with five awards at the American Municipal Power Annual Conference in Cleveland. Hudson Public Power received an innovation award for its GIS mapping project. Completed this past summer, the project allows crews to view up-to-date circuit information via in-vehicle maps, improving speed and efficiency. The utility was recognized with a system improvement award for its supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) upgrade. This upgrade allows HPP to increase data collection, obtain important loading data and improve service to customers. The city also received an environmental stewardship award for its tree planting/recycling/renewable energy programs and for the Atterbury LED street lighting project. HPP received an honorable mention in the public power promotion award category for the electric city campaign, an electric safety program coordinated with the local school system. Hudson was also recognized for providing mutual aid assistance to the City of Piqua following a severe storm in June. In addition, the "Hard Hat" award for safety will be presented to a Hudson Public Power employee in November.
