Neighbors Powering What Matters

Community Energy: the benefit of Dickson Electric System and TVA working together
Community Energy

In Our Region, Power Means More

Dickson Electric System is powered by a public power model — owned by and accountable to the people who live here. So the initiatives we invest in through our power model serve one purpose: helping our communities thrive.

Because we support public power, we all benefit from Community Energy. It’s the progress our model enables — like more job opportunities thanks to thriving and growing communities, outdoor recreation thanks to our protected lands, cleaner energy sources, and much more.

A Partnership of Service

Dickson Electric System and TVA work together to power not just our homes and businesses, but our potential too — by combining efforts to help create a future we all believe in.

Working Together to Make Life in Our Community Better

Dickson Electric System and TVA were founded on a mission to serve — through reliable and affordable energy, a safe and protected environment and thriving economic development.

Our energy has fueled progress in our region since 1933. See the ways it's helping shape our future.
