Columbia Power & Water Systems and Tennessee Valley Authority plans maintenance outage on November 5 & 6, 2022

This outage is required to safely repair and maintenance high voltage switches.

Columbia, TN – Columbia Power & Water Systems (CPWS) and Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) has scheduled a maintenance outage for its North Columbia Substation. The outage will begin at 11:30 PM Saturday, November 5 and will last until approximately 8:00 AM on Sunday, November 6.

The outage is required to allow crews to safely perform repairs and maintenance work on substation switches in preparation to provide service to the GM Ultium battery plant. By taking time to address problems that were discovered during a regular inspection, CPWS and TVA will be able to maintain reliable power deliveries to the City of Spring Hill and the City of Columbia.

Customers that will be affected will be from Carters Creek Pike north to Commonwealth Drive, Duplex Road east to Port Royal Road, and Beechcroft Road west to Gravel Hill Road. If you live in the surrounding area, please make preparations to be without power for the duration of this outage.

Please remember to turn off or unplug sensitive electronic devices during the outage to reduce the chance they may be damaged when power is restored. We would also suggest if you have medical devices that require power you make arrangements to have an alternate power source for these devices. We appreciate your patience as we work to keep our distribution system safe and reliable.
