Upper Cumberland Electric Membership Corporation (UCEMC) recently rebranded itself to better reflect who they are today. UCEMC maintains its commitment to serve its neighbors with safe, reliable electric service. The new logo is a reflection of who UCEMC is today and their focus on the future of economic development in the region, by delivering a modern, efficient power distribution system.



UCEMC is forward-thinking, always putting members’ needs first. That’s why they embarked on an impressive undertaking to invest in plant infrastructure improvements. This investment allows UCEMC to stay ahead of the power technology curve by becoming more efficient with less resources. For members, it means that UCEMC will provide a higher degree of reliability and allow UCEMC to keep rates affordable.



“We place great value in the rich history we’ve built and where we need to focus for the future. We wanted this logo to reflect who UCEMC is today,” said General Manager Jimmy Gregory. “We are focused on providing local, reliable, safe and affordable power to local people, our friends and neighbors.”



UCEMC is a cooperative owned by its members. It distributes electric power through more than 4,500 miles of lines to more than 47,000 meters located primarily in Jackson, Overton, Putnam, Smith Counties and northern DeKalb County, with additional members served in the fringe areas of Clay, Fentress, Macon, Pickett, White and Wilson.

Notice of Members Targeted by Utility Scam


Upper Cumberland Electric Membership Corporation (UCEMC) reminds members to be on alert for a telephone scam that continues to plague rural Tennesseans. 

Scam artists call a home or business posing as a co-op or utility employee and threaten to shut off service unless the consumer provides immediate payment using a reloadable debit card, prepaid gift card or online payment service like PayPal. 

“The calls sound official, and the caller ID may even display the utility name,” says Jimmy Gregory, General Manager of UCEMC. “This scam is particularly harmful to consumers because there is no way to track or recover the money.” 

Officials stress that UCEMC will:

  • NEVER call members to request credit card, banking or other financial information over the telephone.
  • NEVER call members threatening immediate disconnection unless a payment is made. Some co-ops do give members with a first time delinquent account a courtesy call prior to disconnection.
  • NEVER ask to enter your home unless you initiate the request for co-op personnel to perform a specific service. Co-ops do this only by appointment and with a member’s prior knowledge.

“We are asking co-op members to be wary of any phone calls,” Gregory says. “If in doubt, hang up immediately, and call 800-261-2940. Be certain you are dealing with an official representative of the cooperative.” 

Upper Cumberland Electric Membership Corporation serves approximately 48,000 meters in DeKalb, Macon, Smith, Wilson, Jackson, Overton, Clay, Fentress, Pickett, Putnam and White counties. Visit to learn more.  

Notice of Utility Bill Scam
Upper Cumberland Electric Membership Corporation (UCEMC) would like to warn our members of a utility bill scam sent by email.   A UCEMC member received an email from a bogus billing system and alerted us of the scam.  The email contained an account number, bill date, current charges, and payment due date. The email instructed the member to click to view their bill or register for an online account.   UCEMC advises our members who receive this type of email to delete it. 
Members may contact their local district office during regular business hours on Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. to confirm their account status. 

Want to stop receiving paper bills, by selecting E-Notifications under the "My Accounts" tab, we will send you an e-mail containing a password protected link alerting you a new bill is ready for viewing.  You can also elect to receive both e-mail notifications and paper billing.

One of TVA’s longest running efficiency programs, the Heat Pump Program promotes the installation of high-efficiency heat pumps in homes and small businesses by offering incentives to local power companies and dealers for installations.

TVA fosters a Quality Contractor Network (QCN) to maintain high installations standards.  An added benefit for QCN members has been a sales promotion for qualifying installations to help increase the number of heat pumps in the Tennessee Valley.  This promotion alone achieved more than 7.7 GWh of savings.

UCEMC received an award for being one of the Top Performers in Heat Pumps from TVA.  UCEMC was fourth in the Valley in heat pumps installed relative to energy efficiency projects.
