“This will conclude the work we began several months ago along South Cumberland and will improve our service to that area of Lebanon,” said MTEMC Field Engineer Chris Weaver. “Doubling our system’s line voltage improves the amount of electricity the lines can carry and decreases electric current losses, making our system more efficient and reliable.”
Specifically, the affected locations include those along South Cumberland Street from Legends Drive to north of Jennings Street. Some of the businesses that will be affected include Cracker Barrel, Applebee’s and Jack in the Box. In addition, MTEMC’s outage will include those in Fisher Trailer Park on Tater Peeler Road.
Should weather become inclement, the work will be postponed until Dec. 11.
