About Us

Tennessee Connections is an official publication of the Tennessee Municipal Electric Power Association and is available to the customers of participating TMEPA systems. If you are a customer of a participating utility, you are automatically enrolled to receive a copy. There are currently no separate or individual subscriptions available.

What is the frequency?
Tennessee Connections is published quarterly.

What is the purpose of Tennessee Connections?
To educate TMEPA customers with a unified voice about the issues of importance to them and their power provider.

What is Farm Flavor Media’s relationship with TMEPA?
Farm Flavor Media, a division of Journal Communications Inc., publishes Tennessee Connections for participating members of TMEPA.

Why should a system become a participant?
The benefits of participating in Tennessee Connections:
* Customer loyalty
* Unified voice on the issues (potential for 2 million lobbyists!)
* Keep your customer informed on your programs and services with a local insert spotlighting your system
* Give energy saving tips to your customers
* Develop better retention of the information your system puts out through this true magazine format
* Give your customers something positive to remember you by – something besides a bill
* Reach more people with your message because the magazine tends to have a longer shelf life than a newsletter or bill insert

Which TMEPA utility systems currently provide Tennessee Connections to their customers?
Customers of the following systems receive Tennessee Connections: Brownsville Utility Department, Dickson Electric System, Humboldt Utilities, Lewisburg Electric System, Ripley Power & Light Co., and Sparta Electric System.
