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.

Tree Line USA Program
Every day in communities all across America, people depend on safe, reliable electric service to power their homes, businesses, and public buildings – all while protecting and enhancing the urban forest.
The TreeLine USA® program exists to recognize best practices in public and private utility arboriculture, demonstrating how trees and utilities can co-exist for the benefit of communities and citizens.
The Arbor Day Foundation collaborates with the National Association of State Foresters on this initiative. These state foresters bring expertise in balancing the demands of expanding utility needs in our communities alongside the benefits of providing adequate care for our urban forests.
MUS is proud to be one of the 19 utilities across the state of TN to hold this certification.
