LAKEWOOD, Colo. – Western Area Power Administration modernizes its 10-year old website, wapa.gov, by improving its functionality and updating its look and feel. The redesigned site launched today. In addition, WAPA has returned to using its acronym to reduce confusion.

In response to customers and interest from the general public, WAPA updated its web pages. Sites are streamlined and easier to use thanks to feedback provided by a months-long discovery period and online service survey. WAPA's website redesign will continue in the coming months as stakeholder needs are further defined.

The effort is part of WAPA's commitment to enhance and expand transparency. The new logo, created in-house at no additional cost, is scalable to modern devices and consolidates WAPA's myriad program logos into one recognizable green, white and blue logo.

 
"After 19 years, WAPA's iconic logo has run its course," said WAPA Chief Pub​lic Affairs Officer Teresa Waugh. "The new logo translates well across various technologies, helping us meet customers where they interact the most. We are now easier to find and identify in an online world." 

The new look and feel is anchored in The Source, a one-stop shop for WAPA's annual reports, budget allocation, presentations and speeches, regional rates and a searchable database of WAPA's power systems called "By the Numbers." The Source maintains two-way communication with its customers via a regularly monitored feedback in-box at TheSource@wapa.gov.

"Our commitment to clarity is reflected across all levels of our organization," said WAPA Administrator and CEO Mark Gabriel. "It is another example of our on-going promise to customers to fulfill our federal mission in as clear and transparent a way as possible."
