2021 Partner of the Year

Apogee Receives  2021 Partner of the Year Award

Apogee Interactive is the proud recipient of the prestigious Hometown Connections Philip D. Shaffer 2021 Partner of the Year Award for customer engagement. The award recognizes outstanding contributions to community-owned utilities and Hometown Connections, a national, non-profit utility services organization specializing in the unique challenges of community-owned utilities.

The award highlights Apogee and Oklahoma Municipal Power Authority’s (OMPA) engagement project launched in 2020. The project currently involves 18 of OMPA’s member utilities who have successfully deployed Apogee’s web-based tools for their residential customers. The tools analyze home energy use and provide calculators that help customers make informed energy decisions regarding the purchase of such items as electric vehicles, lighting upgrades, and electric heat pumps.

Steve Mathena, Energy Services & Innovation Supervisor, OMPA, added, “You don’t normally find people that are connected with their customers, customer’s member cities, and end-users. Apogee has a great team, and it has been a pleasure working with them. I look forward to seeing what the future holds for OMPA and Apogee!”

The award was accepted by Apogee’s Key Account Manager, Stephanie Knight-Johndrow, on August 30 at the 2021 Annual Conference in Fort Collins, Colorado.
