Houston, TX – The International Economic Development Council (IEDC) presented Riverside Public Utilities (RPU) with Gold and Silver awards last night during its annual Excellence In Economic Development Awards ceremony.
The IEDC’s professional economic development awards recognize excellence performed in the economic development field around the globe by individuals and organizations whose efforts have created positive change in urban, suburban, and rural communities.
Riverside Public Utilities’ Economic Development and Business Retention Rates, designed to support the economic health of the City of Riverside by offering existing, expanding, and new commercial energy customers discounts on electric rates, received Gold recognition by the IEDC.
Meanwhile, RPU’s informative “Business Book” publication, which outlines available rebate and incentives programs offered by the utility for commercial customers, received a Silver award in the Special Purpose Brochure category.
“We’re very pleased to receive these prestigious recognitions,” said RPU Assistant General Manager Mike Bacich. “We are proud of the programs we create in Riverside which help our customers and our community thrive during these challenging economic times.”
