May 27, 2023

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WZTV) — Corporations 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 companies say they’re concerned about losing organization and thousands of dollars’ worth of merchandise.

Emily Williams, marketing and advertising manager at Pet Desires Nashville, says her retailer is in danger of losing up to $ten,000 worth of perishable pet merchandise due to the fact of NES’ planned outage.

“If it is thawed out for far more than two hours, it has the possible to go terrible and clearly spoil,” Williams mentioned.

NES says this outage will effect residential and industrial buildings amongst 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 costs and hold a sale to decrease the economic effect.

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

FOX 17 News reached out to NES to see if it will reimburse companies 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 one particular has gotten back to us about something. I’m assuming due to the fact lots of individuals are contacting them about troubles they’re going to have through these ten hours,” Williams mentioned.

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

Some apartment buildings may perhaps temporarily drop access to their elevators and air conditioning which is raising security issues.
