CDE Lightband completes restoration of power to Clarksville Residents

Clarksville Department of Electricity - CDE - CDE LightbandClarksville, TN – CDE Lightband is happy to report that every Clarksville customer that can be reconnected has been. CDE does have several customers still out of power but mainly due to riser issues and/or other repairs needed on the home.

If the customer’s Service Mast/Riser is damaged and/or needs replacing, CDE Lightband will come out and disconnect the power lines (unless they’re already disconnected), but the homeowner will have to have the Service Mast/Riser repaired by an electrician.

Once that is done, CDE Lightband can reconnect its lines and restore service.

However, an inspection by Building and Codes will have to be done within 7 days.
