TMEPA is a membership association of 59 of the 60 Municipal Electric Power Providers of Tennessee serving over 2.1 million homes and businesses.  Smithville Electric System is the only one not a member.  This figure includes over 70% of the electric consumers in the State of Tennessee.  Our Primary objective is to represent the members in the state legislative arena although we do participate in national issues in conjunction with APPA and TVPPA.  As a service oriented organization, we also provide a number of other services to the members and exist for their benefit.  Membership in TMEPA brings a host of benefits to its members and the financial savings have certainly exceeded the nominal annual fee each system pays.  The following are informational documents that may be of interest.  Just “click” on the title for more information.

The 2nd Session has ended and now it's campaign time.  Though our broadband bill didn't make it, the momentum is still there and we'll be back next January.  In the meantime, we urge you to be in contact with your Senators and Representatives over the summer and fall months and to build on the great relationships we already enjoy. We'll be back at the Hermitage in 2016 for our annual Rally and Reception.  Details will be sent later this fall. 

We've now been at the new office over two years and still appreciative of our new home.  Simply put, we love it.  Just in case you haven't had an opportunity to visit, it's at 212 Overlook Circle, Suite 205, Brentwood, TN 37027 and is about 1.6 miles east of our old location. Click HERE for MapQuest Directions.   The "Member Wall" has become a favorite of visitors.  Click on the link to the left to view the pictures "on the Wall".  Click HERE for a YouTube video of the new office.
