Local, award-winning service and tech support for your family’s needs

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.

 

Yes, for newly installed water heaters that qualify.

Water heaters can account for to 20% of your home’s power consumption. So we offer EPB customers a $50 credit on their electric bill when they purchase and install a new electric water heater that meets minimum Department of Energy guidelines and has a capacity of at least 40 gallons.

Making the Green Power Switch helps our community support cleaner, more environmentally friendly energy generation options, in partnership with TVA.

By purchasing one or more 150 kilowatt-hour blocks of Green Power for $4 each per month, you support the use of renewable energy resources like wind, solar power and methane gas. These resources generate energy with less pollution, from sources right here in the Chattanooga area. While no energy resource is completely impact-free, each block of Green Power you purchase makes a difference.

By installing renewable energy generation equipment such as wind and solar, customers may qualify for some Federal tax credits for renewable energy.

EPB can provide technical support for any such installation, because all equipment must be in compliance with national standards and all applicable codes and be certified by a licensed electrician.

TVA will then purchase 100% of the green power output, paying the current electric rate for all output. Payment is made in the form of a credit issued by EPB on the monthly power bill for the home or business where the generation system is located – and guaranteed for ten years from the date of the contract.
