The Voice of Utilities Privatization System Owners
Utility Privatization Partners (UPP) is a new organization uniting the companies and organizations that own utilities through the Department of Defense’s (DOD) groundbreaking utilities privatization (UP) program, which has privatized more than 600 utility systems on military bases over the past 20 years. UPP’s goal is to advance the outcomes and benefits of UP through education, information and engagement. From large water, gas and electric utilities providers to small, local electric cooperatives, UPP brings together a diverse group of partners to advocate for enhancing and expanding this successful partnership with a focus on reliability and resilience.
