The rates are good. The website is poor and not intuitive. There is no way that I have found to log in and access your historical usage. Also, when you or your spouse signs up for service if the account is in their name, the other spouse will not have access to the account unless an access code is arranged ahead of time. This can be problematic if one is out of town. You would think that both members of a husband wife team would have access to the account that serves the household. Do yourself a favor and arrange whatever you need to when you request new service.Finally, when you sign up for service you are automatically added to the "round up" program where your bill is rounded to the next higher dollar and the proceeds go to the causes that the board of directors sees fit. You must opt out if you do not want to participate. They do not list the beneficiaries on your bill so you never known where the funds are going unless you do some deep digging.The employees at Middle Tennessee Electric are generally pleasant to deal with and almost smile over the phone. Tennessee is steeped in the Judeo Christian ethic and the Biblical "Love your neighbor as yourself" direction is evident in their personalities. The employees are great even though their website is poor and the rules they have to conduct business by are idiotic.

The meter replacement program is advertising who are not home and which houses are good targets for burglary. A tag is hung on the front door of every home, that if not removed that day, advertises an empty house. With so many people out of town between Christmas and New Years, the program should be stopped this week.

Tips & Advices
Keep the following tips in mind:
  • Do not operate any electrical equipment while sitting or standing in water.
  • Don't overload extension cords or surge protectors.
  • Put caps on your electrical outlets if you have small children.
  • Call an electrician if you notice your sockets or switches are warm to the touch, discolored or if they make noise.
  • Keep electrical cords away from stoves, ovens and other sources of heat.
  • Do not use an appliance that has a frayed cord.
  • Do not staple extension cords into place or cover them with carpets or furniture.
  • When using extension cords, make sure to unwrap them before plugging them in.
  • Don't overuse extension cords. Have an electrician install extra outlets if you need a power source closer to you.
  • Only use light bulbs with the correct wattage for your lamps and light fixtures.
  • Contact a licensed electrician if you frequently blow fuses, since this can be a sign of an electrical wiring problem.
  • Have an electrician look at your fuse box to ensure you have the right size fuses and circuit breakers. The wrong size fuse or breaker can be a fire hazard.
  • If you have fault circuit interrupters installed in your electrical panel, make sure you test them at least once a month by turning them on and off.
It can cost from $40-$100 an hour depending on the job. This does not include additional costs for parts or trip fees. Make sure to ask in advance what they charge for or if they will provide a free quote.
In order to become a full-fledged professional, a person must undergo an apprenticeship with master and journeyman electricians. An apprentice needs 8,000 hours of practical work before graduating to the journeyman level. If an apprentice reaches journeyman status, he or she can complete most electrical work, but cannot design it until completing more testing along with 2,000 more on-the-job hours.
Yes. While all electricians need a license, not all of them do the same types of jobs.
  • Outside: These types of electricians work outdoors on electrical lines that connect to power plants.
  • Inside: Inside experts typically focus on commercial and industrial buildings that require a lot of power.
  • Residential: Residential electricians work with low-voltage systems and wiring to install fuse boxes and light fixtures.
Watch out for contractors that greatly underbid other electricians. If the price seems too good to be true, it probably is. Also, always remember to get the estimate in writing before settling on a company.
