CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (AP) — Two Tennessee utilities say the Tennessee Valley Authority has asked them to reduce their power usage.

Chattanooga municipal utility EPB and Cleveland Utilities Electrical Division told WRCB-TV (http://bit.ly/1gdzb2f) that TVA made the request on Tuesday morning.

In response, the electric providers are asking customers to reduce their power usage by taking measures such as turning off non-essential appliances and lowering thermostats by a few degrees.

TVA is the nation's largest public utility, supplying power to about 9 million people in Tennessee, Alabama, Mississippi, Kentucky, Georgia, North Carolina and Virginia.
