NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WZTV) — Organizations in the Gulch are frustrated following 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 business enterprise and thousands of dollars’ worth of items.

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 items 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 poor and naturally spoil,” Williams stated.

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 reduce the monetary effect.

“We’re going to have to purchase a bunch of coolers, which will naturally not assistance with our sales for that week but we’re going to attempt and sell as significantly 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 can not deliver reimbursements of any sort to impacted prospects.

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 people today are contacting them about challenges they’re going to have throughout these ten hours,” Williams stated.

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

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