May 27, 2023

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WZTV) — Companies in the Gulch are frustrated right after getting a two-week notice from Nashville Electric Solutions (NES) announcing a planned ten-hour energy outage.

Some of the corporations say they’re concerned about losing business enterprise and thousands of dollars’ worth of items.

Emily Williams, advertising manager at Pet Desires Nashville, says her retailer is in danger of losing up to $ten,000 worth of perishable pet items since of NES’ planned outage.

“If it is thawed out for extra than two hours, it has the prospective to go undesirable and clearly spoil,” Williams stated.

NES says this outage will influence residential and industrial buildings involving the hours of 9 p.m. and 7 a.m. on Sunday, June 11 to energy the new improvement at 915 Division Street.

In a final-minute panic, Williams says she plans to reduce rates and hold a sale to reduce the monetary influence.

“We’re going to have to obtain a bunch of coolers, which will clearly not aid with our sales for that week but we’re going to attempt and sell as substantially as we can for the freezer stuff,” Williams explained.

FOX 17 News reached out to NES to see if it will reimburse corporations or residents who are scrambling, but NES says it cannot deliver reimbursements of any sort to impacted buyers.

Williams says she hasn’t heard back from NES about other issues.

“No a single has gotten back to us about something. I’m assuming since lots of men and women are contacting them about issues they’re going to have throughout these ten hours,” Williams stated.

NES says it plans longer outages overnight to reduce the influence on buyers, but some corporations say timing does not matter. Residents in this region also have security issues.

Some apartment buildings might temporarily shed access to their elevators and air conditioning which is raising security issues.
