Power Board Hosts First of Three Community Forums

Johnson City Power Board (JCPB) recently hosted the first of a series of community forums at the Jonesborough Visitor Center. Named The Smart Grid Road Show, the program consisted of a comprehensive presentation detailing the utility’s adoption and deployment of smart grid technology followed by an open question and answer forum. JCPB President & CEO, Homer G’Fellers, facilitated the presentation while JCPB Chief Officers addressed details specific to their individual responsibilities. Their presentation offered past, present, and future perspectives on utility operations and offered a glimpse into the technology and rationales driving changes within JCPB and the electrical industry.

JCPB Chief Public Relations Officer, Robert White, offered,” These events give us a chance to speak face-to-face with our customers to help them understand all the changes happening within our company and in the Tennessee Valley. It’s also a great opportunity for folks to come out and meet with our staff to get answers to any questions they might have about our company, their accounts, or anything else related to our products and services.”

Accompanying the presenters were representatives from JCPB’s Customer Service, Tree-Trimming, and Marketing and Energy Services departments. A remote online connection to customer account information was available to accommodate on-sight review of individual account information. The next event will be held in Johnson City at the Carver Recreation Center on Thursday, May 12 between 7 and 8:30 PM. The final event will follow on the next Thursday, May 19 between 7 and 8:30 PM at the Fordtown Ruritan in Sullivan County. Please bring your family, tell your friends, and come spend an evening learning about what’s in store for our company and community.
