Due to inclement weather and for the safety of Middle Tennessee Electric (MTE) members and employees, MTE just announced that it will be closing its office locations Thursday (1/6/2022) at 3:00 p.m.

Offices are tentatively scheduled to re-open Friday at 9:00 a.m., weather permitting.

As always, MTE’s member service phone lines are open at 877-777-9020.

Currently, we do not have any reported outages, but the control center is staffed 24/7 to monitor the electric system.

“As the weather continues to deteriorate, we made the decision to alter our normal office hours and move to a schedule that will better ensure the safety of our members and employees,” said MTE President and CEO Chris Jones. “Our member service team remains in place as always to address any member needs and our line crews are dispersed throughout the MTE service areas, ready to assist if needed. We encourage members to contact us with any issues, and everyone to shelter in place until the storm passes and roads are clear.”

Further updates will be forwarded as they become available. Please see MTE’s Facebook page for the latest updates or go to www.mte.com
