TVA asks for voluntary power cutbacks; Huntsville Utilities delays non-payment interruptions

HUNTSVILLE – Due to dangerously low temperatures in the Tennessee Valley Authority service area and the expected high electric demand expected on their system, TVA is asking for voluntary curtailment across their entire system.

Customers are asked to reduce their electric consumption by turning off unneeded lights and by not using major appliances (ovens, washing machines, washers/dryers, etc.), specifically between 6 and 10 a.m. Wednesday.

TVA employees and local power companies are working around the clock to keep the electricity flowing.

Meanwhile, residents who haven’t been able to make a trip to pay their Huntsville Utilities monthly bill with offices closed Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday because of inclement weather, don’t fret.

Huntsville Utilities said it will not interrupt service for non-payment until temperatures moderate. To report a power outage or other service interruption, call 256-53-LIGHT (256-535-4448).

HU also said it’s monitoring all systems during the current weather. Crews are on call and responding to service issues caused by the winter weather. 

Customers can contact Huntsville Utilities at www.hsvutil.org or by calling 256-535-1200. The self-service kiosks will also be available, but customers are asked to avoid traveling on the roads if possible.
