The Gallatin Department of Electricity offers the TVA Green Switch program™. The money you add to your bill for Green Power goes to promote clean, renewable energy sources by harnessing the power of the earth, sun, and wind. Each block of 200 kwh you purchase adds $2.00 to your monthly electric bill. Please visit their website for more information.

Levelized billing is designed to help our customers avoid large fluctuations in their monthly electric bill. It keeps your electric bill predictable and helps you accurately anticipate your monthly payment amount. It does not reduce your electric bill but will ”level” out your charges.
With our Levelized Billing Plan, your levelized electric bill is calculated by adding your current month’s electric bill and your previous 11 months’ electric bills and dividing that by 12. In addition, one 12th of any unpaid balance resulting from this averaging, or minus any overpaid balance resulting from this averaging will be applied to the bill and then rounded to the nearest dollar. Reconciliation of your account will be necessary only if you move or decide to cancel your participation in the program.
Customers wanting to participate in this program must have a $0 balance on their account and a minimum of 12 month's service at the same location. To sign up for the program, please come by our office or call us at 615-452-5152.
