TVA and JCPB Appeal to Reduce Usage

Johnson City, TN -

The Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) and Johnson City Power Board (JCPB) are appealing to their customers to eliminate all non-essential electricity usage until further notice. TVA alerted JCPB that they have enacted step 30 of their Emergency Load Curtailment Program (ELCP). Details of step 30 of the ELCP call for ALL customers to reduce their usage as much as comfortably possible to reduce the likelihood of power shortages.

 

Until further notice, please refrain from all non-essential electricity usage including using hot water from electric water heaters, washing clothes and dishes, and using any electrical lights and appliances.

 

JCPB is also implementing a voltage reduction plan and contacting its larger commercial and industrial customers to minimize usage within their respective facilities.

 

Updates on the status of the ELCP will be distributed as they become available. Thank you for your cooperation and help in reducing demand on our electricity infrastructure and resources.

 

The JCPB serves over 76,000 customers within Washington, Sullivan, Carter and Greene counties in Northeast TN. The JCPB is a not-for-profit, public power provider and is the tenth largest of the TVA's 155 electricity distributors. The JCPB also offers a wide variety of energy services and programs to its residential and commercial customers.
