Utility Surveys

Survey reports are great comparison tools when comparing wages and benefits with like organizations. For this reason, NWPPA conducts three utility specific surveys for members in alternating years: General Managers Wage & Compensation Survey; Directors, Commissioners, and Other Elected Officials Compensation; and Linecrew Pay & Benefits Survey. Results are published in aggregate. All survey information is kept confidential and may only be accessed by NWPPA utility member general managers and HR senior management.Contact Alyssa Shoaf at alyssa@nwppa.org to learn how your organization can participate in the surveys, and for access to survey reports.
