About the EPB Smart Grid
EPB has incorporated thousands of sensors and control devices across our power distribution grid to keep your lights burning bright. The EPB Smart Grid utilizes Chattanooga’s community-wide fiber optic network to report and respond to problems in real-time. In fact, this system is so advanced it can automatically re-route power around problems to prevent many customers from ever experiencing an outage.
