Energy Efficiency

Morristown Utility Systems has serviced this community’s needs since 1901. We know energy. That is why MUS is making energy efficiency programs one of our TOP PRIORITIES!

We strive to find new ways to reduce our dependency on our non-renewable resources.   New technology, at affordable rates, will one day take the place of coal.  In the economic climate of the world we live in today, money just can’t stretch as far as it used to. These are reasons we have to change the way we use electricity.  With rising prices and extreme weather, we realize we must change to be able to provide quality utility services for our customers.

We are in charge of energy efficiency for our homes. We can be our own boss and take control of our power bill through voluntary changes in our behavior.  Here at MUS, we take our responsibility as a part of this community seriously, so we are prepared to help our customers with information and programs to help. Come by and ask us for more information.

Green Power Switch

The Green Power Switch Program is a step in saving our natural resources. By participating in this program you are allowing changes to be made in the way your electricity is produced. Non-renewable resources which are now used will someday be depleted.

The Green Power Switch Program produces electricity through renewable means, such as wind power, solar power, and landfill methane plants. The kWh usage for a home averages 1500kWh per month. Green Power is purchased in blocks of 150kWh, the equivalent of 12% of the average monthly bill. You can purchase as many blocks as you wish. Each block is $4.00 more on your monthly bill. This extra $4.00 per block (150kWh) amount is to help build more renewable facilities and to cover the higher cost of producing these resources.

To get more information, call 317-6204.  To sign up, please fill out the attached form (pdf) and mail it to P.O. Box 667, Morristown, TN 37815 or bring it to the office at 441 West Main Street, Morristown, TN 37814.

Generation Power Partners

Morristown Utility Systems and TVA offer consumers an opportunity to help protect the environment—a program called Generation Power Partners. This program encourages homes and businesses to produce renewable energy by providing technical support and incentives. The sources may be solar, wind, biomass or small-scale hydropower. The program is for smaller systems with a generating capacity between 500 watts and 50 kilowatts. Read more about Green Power Providers. - Generation Program participants support the environment by helping keep the Tennessee Valley clean and green. They also benefit by defraying the costs of their renewable system installation and lowering their monthly energy bills through the revenue they receive from the sale of the green power.
