BE PREPARED, WHEREVER YOU ARE

Most people don’t think about disasters until they strike and they’re faced with figuring out what to do in the midst of a storm.

At Nashville Electric Service, we routinely prepare for and practice responding to emergencies so that we’re ready to roll no matter what conditions exist.

We encourage you to do the same with your family, friends or roommates. Know the hazards in your area, create a plan, and assemble an emergency supply kit, including batteries, flashlights, a portable radio, battery-powered clock, nonperishable food, bottled water and any necessary medications.

According to a recent survey by the Federal Emergency Management Agency, nearly 60 percent of all Americans have not practiced how to respond to a disaster in the past year. National PrepareAthon! Day on April 30 is working to change that.

CUSTOMERS RANK NES A 2017 ENVIRONMENTAL CHAMPION

In celebration of Earth Day, Nashville Electric Service (NES) is proud to be one of 40 utilities in the country recognized as a 2017 Environmental Champion.

This designation is based on a nationwide residential customer study released by Cogent Reports™, a division of Market Strategies International.

“Earth Day is a great time to acknowledge companies that have shown dedication to the environment,” said Chris Oberle, senior vice president at Market Strategies International. “This is particularly important for utilities like NES, as their customers are saying that environmental stewardship is one of the most desirable utility brand traits.”

The study scores an Environmental Dedication Index based on five critical attributes. These ratings provide a key performance benchmark for utilities.

NES leads the way among utilities in the Valley in energy-efficiency program participation such as Green Power Switch, Green Power Providers, Do-It-Yourself Energy Audits, Energy Right Solutions for Business and eScore. As a result, our customers saved more than 26 million kilowatt hours (kWh) last year alone.

NES also supports low-emission vehicles, such as our first-ever hybrid electric bucket truck and plug-in hybrid electric light-duty pickup truck, 133 light-duty flex fuel vehicles, which are capable of running on E85 ethanol and unleaded fuels, and three 100 percent electric Nissan Leaf cars.
