Keeping Warm - Staying Aware

(January 16, 2018 – Centerville, TN) – Cold temperatures across the area are placing additional demands on the power system, and Meriwether Lewis Electric Cooperative and the Tennessee Valley Authority are working hard to ensure you remain safe and warm.

Until the temperature moderates on Thursday afternoon, January 18, residents can help reduce their future power bills – and help ensure continued reliable power for their neighbors – by taking a few simple actions:

Winter Storm Preparedness

(January 11, 2018) —While Meriwether Lewis Electric Cooperative takes proactive measures to prevent outages, like right of way clearing and utilizing quality equipment and material, Mother Nature sometimes causes problems out of our control. With a Winter Storm Warning in affect for much of MLEC’s service area, we wanted to help build awareness on ways you can better “weather the storm” should outages occur.

Space Heater Safety

(January 8, 2018) — Many people turn to space heaters—both electric models and those powered by kerosene or wood— as a convenient source of warmth in winter months. However, space heaters can be dangerous if not used properly.

Safe Holiday Cooking - Prevent a Fire

(December 12, 2017)  —  The kitchen is the heart of the home. Sadly, it’s also where two out of every five home fires start. Many home fires occur during what’s supposed to be the happiest time of the year – the holidays. Christmas and Christmas Eve hold a tradition of cooking, and safety should always be considered in the kitchen.

Update Your Hickman & Lewis County YP Phone Book MLEC Listing

(December 6, 2017)  —  Meriwether Lewis Electric Cooperative is making residents aware of a revision needed to the 2017 Hickman County and Lewis County phone directories being released this month. Our ad in the Yellow Pages lists an outdated after-hours call center number in both editions, and an old number is printed in the Hohenwald White Pages.

MLEC changed call centers earlier this year and supplied the updated information to YP. Unfortunately, it was too late to update the phone number for this year’s edition of the phone book.
