I missed a bill. ONE BILL. The email went to my spam box for the first time ever. Who knows why, but the result was that I missed it. That was on 7/11. I triple checked my email just now and I have not received either an email OR a paper statement since that last bill on 7/11.However, not sending me another bill with a past due amount OR any separate past due notice did not stop them from coming out to disconnect my service just now or receive a payment IN PERSON. I received no email, no mail, no phone call. The bill is only one month past due and the August bill still hasn't arrived. Regardless, I had to pay a $25 charge to have someone come out and collect the money in person. TWENTYFIVE DOLLARS that could have been prevented by a phone call or even an automated email. And I know they have an excellent automated service, because that is all you can get when you try to contact them. They are excellent at avoiding customers.I hate that in TN there are monopolies with the utility companies. You can't escape them, so there is no way to even use your customer power to go to another company. Its awful and it should not be allowed. I wish I could tell you to avoid them, but sadly, you won't be able to.

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.
