Freezing temps grip the mid-state, MTEMC has tips to help

As the temperature continues to drop in the area and more cold days forecast, Middle Tennessee Electric Membership Corporation officials are reminding members there are precautions to keep their homes warm while minimizing the impact on their electric bills.

“When the cold weather like this hits, it’s easy to raise the thermostat, but doing that also raises your electric bill,” said MTEMC Communications Coordinator Josh Clendenen. “There are a number of things you can do that can reduce your energy usage both now when the cold weather is here as well as in the future.”

Middle Tennessee Electric crews return from Georgia

The 16 men (three, five-man crews and a mobile mechanic) returned early today from helping restore power to the members of Snapping Shoals Electric Membership Corporation in Covington, Ga., in the wake of Hurricane Irma.

Throughout the last week, the team has been assisting with power restoration efforts, clearing trees from downed lines, repairing broken poles and stringing new lines.
