NES Update for TUESDAY, Dec 12 – 12:30 PM

Progress continues at Nashville Electric Service on power restoration, and we appreciate the patience of our customers after two of our substations took a direct hit from the tornadoes. Our crews are working around the clock in rotating shifts and will keep working until every single customer has power. Crews from Georgia, Kentucky and Indiana are here assisting with our power restoration efforts.

At this hour, we have about 2,800 customers without power, most of those are in the Hendersonville area but there are additional pockets of outages along the storm line. This is a significant improvement from the 48,000 at the storm’s peak. The storm broke 189 poles, which take time to replace. Crews spent most of the night digging holes for new ones to be set and energized. So far, we’ve already replaced over 50 of those broken poles.
