Power Outage – December 1, 2023


All of Perry County and portions of Hickman and Humphreys Affected

(November 30, 2023) — All Meriwether Lewis Electric Cooperative members in Perry County, the Pleasantville area of Hickman County, and Cuba Landing in Humphreys County will experience a power interruption at 11 p.m. on Friday, December 1. Small, connected locations may also be involved. The outage is expected to last less than an hour but is crucial to service.

The outage is required quickly so that MLEC can conduct essential repairs and ensure reliability for the area. MLEC crews will work with the Tennessee Valley Authority to isolate the location for safety and efficiency.

“We appreciate everyone’s patience and support in helping us maintain the power system to the highest standards,” says MLEC Vice President of Engineering and Operations Ed Greenwell. “Crews will work as quickly and safely as possible to keep the outage time to a minimum.”

Should anyone have concerns, please contact your local MLEC office for further information.
