Why planned outages?

MLEC has a planned outage set for June 26. A member inquired about some details giving us a great opportunity to share information with everyone on planned outages and why they can be beneficial to not only MLEC but also its members.

Planned Outage - Hickman Co. June 26

(June 7, 2016) —  Part of Hickman County will be without power on Sunday, June 26, from 7 a.m. until approximately 3 p.m. Meriwether Lewis Electric Cooperative will use this time to change out steel poles and equipment crossing the river at Turney Center to improve service reliability.

Energy Price Higher in June

(May 31, 2016)  —  Electric prices are taking a significant jump in June. In fact, Meriwether Lewis Electric Cooperative residential members using 1200 kilowatt-hours will be paying $8.46 more than they did last month. The Tennessee Valley Authority’s seasonal (summer rate) and an increase to their fuel cost adjustment are the cause.  A complete rate schedule is available online.
