About BTESBristol Tennessee Essential Services (BTES) is a municipally-owned electric utility that also provides high-speed Internet, telephone, and cable television services over a fiber optic network. BTES has more than 33,000 electric customers in a 280-square-mile service area in the City of Bristol and Sullivan County, Tennessee. BTES' fiber optic system has allowed them to do many things with electric service that were unheard of just a few short years ago. Those customers with fiber services to their homes have automatic power outage detection, meaning that they do not need to make a telephone call if their power goes out. In addition, the system provides automatic meter reading and theft detection. BTES also offers additional products and services through a Water Heater Load Management Program, a Heat Pump Program and an Energy Savings Loan Program.
