Sunday Power Outage in Bradley County – TVA Feed Loss

A little before 9:00 pm on Sunday night, the east Cleveland  TVA substation took a lightning hit. That hit took out their feed to our Tasso and Riceville Substations. Between those two substations, we had more than 4,000 members without power. Working with ground crews and TVA crews rerouted power to the Riceville substation by 10:15 pm. Crews continued to work with TVA and were able to energize the Tasso sub by 11:30 pm.
