The Russellville Electric Board is a customer of the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA), which provides electricity to utilities throughout our region. We have some of the most competitive utility rates in the country and one of the lowest electric rates of any TVA distributor. Our electric rates are primarily based on the cost established by TVA.


Outdoor Security Lighting
The Electric Board is pleased to offer dusk to dawn lighting for homes and businesses at a low cost that provides light for safety and security. The light, controlled by a photocell, turns on at sunset and off at sunrise.

The Electric Board will maintain the security light. If the light fails to work properly, contact us and a service technician will make repairs at no cost to you.
