UCEMC Cookeville offices are damaged and temporarily closed.
The Cookeville District office of Upper Cumberland Electric Membership Corporation sustained significant damage from the tornado that ripped through the Putnam County area on March 3. Communications are down, and that office is temporarily closed.
In the meantime, two banks are stepping up to help members who need to pay their UCEMC electric bill. Putnam County members may pay their bill with a check or money order at the First Freedom Bank, 376 West Jackson Street in Cookeville, or at the bank’s Algood location, 614 West Main Street, across from Walmart and Potters.
