Middle Tennessee Electric and the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) recently celebrated the 100th Home Uplift on Thursday in Smyrna.  In case you’re unfamiliar with Home Uplift, it’s a program that helps those in our area who may need important energy upgrades that could include everything from replacing an old heating and air conditioning unit to changing out a water heater. The program focuses on increasing energy efficiency for low-income residents who otherwise couldn’t afford the upgrades or changes.

Jason Maierhofer, the TVA North Regional Vice President, pointed out a few highlights of the Home Uplift program when discussing it with Adam May… Again, the Home Uplift program is available to Middle Tennessee Electric members in Rutherford County who have their own home, but can’t afford needed upgrades to their heating and air system and more.


This special program helps lower income residents drive their energy bills down, their quality of life up, and makes homes more energy efficient. Amy Byers with Middle Tennessee Electric in Murfreesboro stated… Replacing the HVAC unit in older homes often equals a 25% savings on home power bills.
