Wayne Burgess Fall Substation Plans UCEMCUCEMC engineer Wayne Anderson looks over the layout of the recently completed Burgess Falls substation near Cookeville.

It’s named after a famous waterfall that attracts thousands of tourists to the state each year. Upper Cumberland EMC’s Chief Engineer Wayne Anderson is confident that some of that “attraction mojo” will translate into economic development once the cooperative’s Burgess Falls Substation comes online. “This area is prime for growth,” says Wayne, as he walks around the newly-built facility near the Burgess Falls/ Baxter 1-40 East exit. “There’s easy access, a golf course, recreation at the lake, and with all this flat land ready for development, it’s bound to grow.” Check out the full story by CLICKING HERE or on The Tennessee Magazine in the Newsroom tab above.
