Union City Electric
Union City Electric serves the city of Union City and some of the surrounding areas. Rates are some of the lowest in the Tennessee Valley.
Commercial - The circuits serving our commercial areas have split circuits to provide a high level of reliability.
Industrial - The system has the ability and capacity to serve most any requested load. Both industrial customers and industrial parks receive the benefit of substations adjacent to all industrial park locations. Some existing industries and future industries with adequate load levels could expect a dedicated distribution circuit for the ultimate in reliability.
Reliability - The Tennessee Valley Authority serves the system with generation and transmission via a multi-line transmission system to a central point. Our sub-transmission system is then taken from this point and provides loop service to the city, providing complete redundancy in case of equipment failure. The distribution system is very compact with short lines, greatly enhancing reliability. The system’s local, well-trained and experienced crews insure quick response and short outages. Our management team stands ready to provide any new customers the highest degree of reliability at the lowest possible cost.
