EPB Unveils Annual Holiday Windows

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (Nov. 23, 2022) – EPB welcomes the community to visit the annual Holiday Windows display at its main office in downtown Chattanooga and across the street in Miller Park. The free public display will be open through Friday, Jan. 6.

“The holidays are a time for us to come together as Chattanoogans in the spirit of the season, and it's especially heartening that EPB's Holiday Windows continue to be a steadfast local tradition that we can all share,” said City of Chattanooga Mayor Tim Kelly.

“EPB’s windows bring cheer to generations of Hamilton County families and are one of many traditions our family looks forward to every year,” said Hamilton County Mayor Weston Wamp.

EPB employees began preparing for the window displays this summer and were joined by STEM School Chattanooga students again this year.

“The elements of the displays offer creative learning experiences for our students,” said STEM School Chattanooga Principal Tony Donen. “Truly, there is something for all our students’ interests that also offer relevant experience for college applications and the workforce.”

“EPB is proud to carry on a tradition that began during the World War II era,” said EPB’s Lauren Obermark who leads the Holiday Windows project. “The Holiday Windows are a fresh expression every year of the magic of the season.”

EPB is located at 10 West MLK Boulevard in Downtown Chattanooga. The holiday window displays can be seen on the Broad and Market Street sides of the building. The holiday display extends across the street to Miller Park by the EPB Community Stage.

Public parking is available in EPB’s downtown garage, surrounding lots and metered spaces.

About EPB

EPB serves the people of the Chattanooga area with advanced smart city infrastructure to enable world-class energy and connectivity solutions that include the most resilient smart grid power distribution system in the United States and the fastest internet in the world. EPB gained national notice when it deployed a community-wide fiber optic network accessible to all its customers and used it to launch America’s first Gig-speed internet in 2010 (beating Google Fiber by 4 years) as well as the first community-wide 10 Gig internet service available as a standard offer to all residences and businesses in 2015. Most recently, EPB launched America's first community-wide 25 Gig internet service, future-proofing the network's capacity and keeping Chattanooga on the cutting edge.

EPB also utilized the fiber optic network as the communications backbone for deploying more than 200,000 smart switches, sensors and other devices to establish the most advanced and highly automated smart grid in the nation. As a result, the U.S. Department of Energy named EPB a living laboratory for pioneering smart grid technologies. Since then, EPB has partnered with Oak Ridge National Laboratory, the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, and more than 20 other national research partners to play a critical role in more than $155 million in smart city research. EPB was also the first major power distribution utility to earn the GBCI’s PEER certification for having a highly automated, modernized electric power grid in 2015 and followed up in 2021 by re-certifying at PEER Gold.

EPB is an independent board of the City of Chattanooga which began serving customers in 1939. Visit epb.com for more information.
