McMinnville Electric System has been recognized by Tennessee Valley Authority as a top performer in the valley among its peers.
MES was presented the award as top performer in the following areas:

• First in the valley for eScore, a residential energy conservation program

• Second in the valley for EnergyRight Solutions for Business

• Fourth in the valley for Total Energy Conservation Program with more than 2.1 million kilowatt-hours saved.

The award was presented to MES Board of Public Utilities chair Jeff Golden and MES manager of environmental services Randy Garrison by TVA representatives Megan Keen and Cynthia Herron.
In fiscal year 2015, TVA successfully launched eScore on the residential side while EnergyRight Solutions for Business exceeded goals by 37 percent. All of the programs together (residential, business and industrial) achieved 412 GWh of savings – enough to power 26,581 homes.
“We value and appreciate our partnership with McMinnville Electric System and the leadership and vision of their board and management team in supporting energy efficiency for their customers and the city of McMinnville,” said Harron.
MES was also recognized in TVA’s 2015 Highlight Report.
“MES and the Board of Public Utilities work diligently to bring the best programs and incentives to our customers,” said Golden. “These programs encourage energy conservation while making homes more comfortable and saving energy dollars. Randy Garrison and his team have found the programs offered by TVA are a great fit for MES customers who have taken advantage of not only the savings, but also of the rebates associated with improving their homes.”
McMinnville Electric System, a public power utility, distributes electricity to more than 8,000 customers in the city of McMinnville.
