When you flip a light switch, you expect the lights to come on. That’s what you’re used to. That level of reliability is what AUB strives to maintain. For nearly 75 years, AUB has delivered reliable power and comfort to homes, businesses and industry in Athens and surrounding McMinn County. Our priority is serving our customers and our community. The job of maintaining the system to ensure this reliability involves monumental work that most people never see. Next time a rousing 2 a.m. lightning storm knocks the power out, know that our people are up in the buckets, fighting the wind and rain, doing whatever it takes to restore the power to the people of our community. AUB distributes electricity to Athens, Englewood, Niota and throughout much of surrounding McMinn County.
