St. Clairsville utilities department receives recognition

COLUMBUS — St. Clairsville Light & Power was honored for its achievements throughout the past year during the 2021 American Municipal Power Annual Conference.

St. Clairsville Light & Power received an AMP System Improvement Honorable Mention in recognition of the Barlowe Rebuild project, which involved the reconstruction of a vital power line along a new route to better serve housing developments and existing customers in the city. The original line, which was constructed in the 1970s, was replaced with new poles, lines, reclosers and section fuses in an area that is free of trees and that offers better access to line crews.

St. Clairsville Light & Power received an AMP Safety Award in the Transmission and Distribution category in recognition of no time lost due to reportable accidents or injuries.

“Safety is a priority at AMP, and we commend the efforts of our members and wish congratulations to all those awarded,” said Michelle Palmer, AMP vice president of technical services and compliance.

The AMP Annual Conference took place Sept. 20-22 in Columbus and offered a virtual option for remote attendees. The organizationás premier event featured presentations and panel discussions by industry experts and speakers from AMP partner organizations
