Clarksville, TN – CDE Lightband continues to work and are ready to keep going strong once as the sun rises. Just over 12,000 customers remain without power.
Because of how widespread the outages are, CDE can’t provide estimated times of restoration. CDE knows this is frustrating and they assure you their employees are working around the clock to get power restored. CDE will have 17 more crews (over 100 workers) coming in from other areas to help this morning. CDE can not thank their utility partners enough for coming to our aid.
The extensive tree damage causes some individual outages more difficult to restore than others. If your neighbors around you have service, there likely is an isolated condition for your specific repair.
CDE truly appreciates all the support and patience from the Clarksville community!
