Electrical Distribution System
Electrical Services is responsible for the maintenance and operation of all electrical distribution systems owned by the Knoxville Campus. This includes all primary and secondary systems located on the Main and Agricultural Campuses and the secondary systems of rental properties located off campus. Therefore, all power outages required in any university building for renovation or maintenance work being performed by outside contractors must be scheduled through the Utilities Services unit. The actual discontinuance and restoration of power will be performed by Facilities Services employees with the assistance of the Knoxville Utilities Board as necessary.
Dedicated electrical outlets can be provided by Electrical Services. Dedicated electrical outlets may or may not be a dedicated circuit for a particular piece of equipment, but the circuit may be dedicated for a particular type of equipment such as computers.
