CDE keeps pushing to restore power

CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. –  CDE Lightband reports at 8 a.m. Thursday that 1,174 customers remain without power. 

Crews are focusing on these areas: 

  • Bel-Aire (East and West), Dave Drive, Gino Drive, Virginia Terrace, Yorktown Road, Dalewood Drive.

  • Oak Street, D Street, E Street, Chapel Street, Locust Street, Market Street.

  • Charlemagne Boulevard, /Morrison Drive.

  • Del Mar Drive, Golf Club Lane, Willow Heights.

  • Oakland Road, Riverbend Drive.

  • South New Providence Boulevard on Sunset Court, Darnell Place, Power Street.

The storm with wind gusts up to 75 mph that came through the area on Saturday, Oct. 26 caused major damage to the power system across Clarksville, initially leaving 25 circuits open and 32,228 customers without power. This included more than 30 downed or broken poles and countless downed trees or limbs, making access to lines and poles difficult. 

With the power restoration process, CDE Lightband  begins by accessing and repairing the substations, getting all circuits operational. Then the focus turns to the distribution system, or primary lines. From there, the tap lines that feed all the neighborhoods are examined and repaired.

Here are some important tips for customers:

  • Treat every downed power line like it’s hot, or energized, and stay clear.

  • Customers with special medical needs requiring electricity should seek temporary, alternative arrangements. 

  • Customers can report their outage online at cdelightband.com, call the office at 931-648-8151, or text CDE to 85700. Reporting on social media does not generate a ticket.

  • Contact home or rental insurance provider to seek replacement of spoiled food.

  • Extremely dangerous hazards such as sparks, fires or arcing should be reported to 911 immediately.

CDE Lightband’s goal is to serve its 70,000 metered customers with reliable electricity. Safety is always a top priority. 

About CDE Lightband: CDE Lightband offers electric, television, Internet and phone service to

customers in the city limits of Clarksville. CDE Lightband is the municipal power provider and

serves more than 70,000 metered homes and businesses with electric service and more than 22,000 customers with broadband services.
