Welcome to Rockwood Electric Utility
At its meeting on March 20, 2018, the Electric Power Board of Rockwood approved a significant revision of its policies and practices for existing customers and for potential new customers requesting electrical service from the Utility. The revised policy, along with its rules and regulations, also includes a completely revised schedule of “Aid-To-Construction Charges and Fees”.
“Standard Service” means a transformer and overhead service wire to a single-family residence and will be provided at no cost to the customer upon complying with the Utility’s Schedule of Rules and Regulations and its Service Practice Policies. Customers desiring excess from the electrical system beyond “Standard Service” must bear the excess cost incident thereto. This includes overhead and underground line extensions, secondary, service, new poles, etc. Also included in the revised policy is the requirement for customers to pay the complete cost associated with relocating or converting existing facilities.
The Board’s policy for extending underground service from existing facilities for residential customers has not changed. However, there is a limit on the length of the service to approximately 200 ft. This is necessary to maintain adequate voltage at the meter base. Click "here

ROCKWOOD ELECTRIC UTILITY RECOGNIZED AS A RELIABLE PUBLIC POWER PROVIDER
Rockwood, TN, June 2, 2017 — The Electric Power Board of Rockwood is pleased to announce that Rockwood Electric Utility has earned a Reliable Public Power Provider (RP3)® designation from the American Public Power Association for providing reliable and safe electric service. David Lynch, Assistant Director of Utility Operations at Marquette Board of Light and Power, Michigan and chair of the Association’s RP3 Review Panel, presented the Platinum designation to Mr. Jim Cooley, Director of Construction and Maintenance, on May 8, 2017 during the Association’s annual Engineering & Operations Technical Conference held in San Antonio, Texas.
The RP3 designation, which lasts for three years, recognizes public power utilities that demonstrate proficiency in four key disciplines: reliability, safety, workforce development and system improvement. Criteria include sound business practices and a utility-wide commitment to safe and reliable delivery of electricity. Rockwood Electric Utility joins more than 220 public power utilities nationwide that hold the RP3 designation.
“Utilities that have earned an RP3 designation demonstrate public power’s emphasis on achieving leading practices and providing a high level of service to communities,” said Lynch. “We are proud to welcome all utilities earning this recognition for the first time and to those renewing their designations.”
“We are honored to receive the Platinum designation and be recognized as a Reliable Public Power Provider,” said Kendall Bear, General Manager of Rockwood Electric Utility. “Our staff works hard to provide reliable service and RP3 recognizes our commitment to serving the community in which we work and live.”
The American Public Power Association has offered the RP3 designation for 12 years now. The Association is the voice of not-for-profit, community-owned utilities that power 49 million people in 2,000 towns and cities nationwide. The Association advocates and advises on electricity policy, technology, trends, training, and operations.
