Vegetation is one of the leading causes of outages in our electric system. Also, downed wires threaten the safety of people and animals as well as increase the cost of providing utility service.

Although we can’t avoid this completely, we can reduce it by proactively managing vegetation growth in certain areas, such as around power poles and equipment.

There are several possible reasons for this. Some neighborhoods get electricity from several different circuits. There may be a damaged transformer serving only three or four homes in the neighborhood. The line connecting power from your street to your home could be broken. There may be damage to your meter. 

Make sure that you’ve reported your power outage to EPB – we may not be aware that your power is out unless you let us know by calling at 423-648-1EPB (1372) or email us at cicweb@epb.net.

 

A REC refers to specifically 1 megawatt of electricity’s environmental benefits. Offsets refer to any increment of environmental benefits less than 1 megawatt hour.
