Tennessee Electrical Power Acquisition Corporation (TEPAC) was organized on November 4, 1998 as a result of the efforts of a number of Tennessee municipal electric utilities to form a joint action agency.  TEPAC membership is open to all Tennessee municipal electric utilities.  Presently, there are 40 active members.

One of the primary purposes for which the Corporation is organized is to acquire, produce, transmit, and otherwise deal in electrical power and energy, to acquire, own, lease, operate, sell, finance, and otherwise deal with and manage facilities for the production, distribution and transmission of electrical power and energy, and to exercise all powers granted to energy acquisition corporations with respect to electrical power and energy by Title 7, Chapter 39, Tennessee Code Annotated.  TEPAC has the ability to operate and provide other services to its members.  As an example, the company previously operated a contract meter reading service.  Dickson Electric System and Lexington Electric System were clients.  At this time, TEPAC has no active projects or services.   Dues have been frozen and no new members are to be added at this time.

An annual meeting of all Associated Municipalities of the Corporation is held on the same date and location as the annual meeting of the Tennessee Municipal Electric Power Association (TMEPA).  Quarterly meetings of the TEPAC Board are held on the same day as the quarterly meetings of the TMEPA Board or as called by the President.

The affairs of the Corporation are managed by the Board of Directors and all the powers of the Corporation are vested in the Board of Directors.  The Board is composed of two Directors from each of the Grand Divisions of Tennessee in addition to Directors from the cities of Chattanooga, Knoxville, Memphis and Nashville, if said city is an active member of the Corporation.  The current Board consists of the following members:
