  • The American Public Power Association (APPA) is the service organization for the more than 2,000 U.S. community-owned electric utilities that serve more than 47 million Americans. APPA was created in September 1940 to represent the common interests of these utilities. Today, APPA’s purpose is to advance the public policy interests of its members and their consumers and provide member services to ensure adequate, reliable electricity at a reasonable price with the proper protection of the environment. Regular APPA membership is open to U.S. public power utilities, joint action agencies (state and regional consortia of public power utilities), rural electric cooperatives, Canadian municipal/provincial utilities, public power systems within U.S. territories and possessions, and state, regional, and local associations in the United States and Canada that have purposes similar to APPA. Members include Los Angeles Department of Water and Power, Long Island Power Authority, Salt River Project in Arizona, Sacramento Municipal Utility District, JEA in Florida, the Iowa Association of Municipal Utilities, and Seattle City Light. APPA also encourages associate memberships from entities and individuals that have an interest in doing business with public power, and from cities and towns exploring the possibility of establishing public power systems.
