Orrville Utilities has received recognition for reliability from the American Public Power Association (APPA). APPA gathers information form all utilities across the nation and selects the recepients. Orrville Electric's average customer interruption was 61 minutes before power was restored. The national average is 203 minutes. Orrville Utilities is quite proud of this accomplishment and recognition. There is a broad spectrum of electric utility employees, management, and staff to thank and who work together to "keep the lights on" in Orrville. This is but one example of the results of being a "Public Power Community",locally owned and operated.
