Renewable Energy Solutions
TVA defines renewable energy as generation that is sustainable and is generally replenished naturally. Today, TVA produces renewable energy from conventional hydro, wind, solar, biogas and biomass co-firing sources. TVA also purchases renewable energy for distribution to its customers and conducts research into clean and renewable sources.
Green Power Switch
This innovative program allows consumers to offset their own carbon footprint and support the production of renewable energy by investing in $4 blocks of green power produced by solar, wind and biogas sources. Make the Green Power Switch today.
Green Power Providers
This program encourages homes and businesses to produce renewable energy by providing technical support and incentives. The sources may be solar, wind, biomass or small-scale hydropower. The program is for smaller systems with a generating capacity between 500 watts and 50 kilowatts. Read more about Green Power Providers.
Renewable Standard Offer
This program promotes the development of larger-size renewable power systems in the TVA service area generating between 50 kilowatts and 20 megawatts. Eligible systems include solar, wind, biomass (direct combustion or gasification) and methane recovery. Find out more about the Renewable Standard Offer.
Solar Solutions Initiative
Solar Solutions Initiative is a pilot incentive for Valley-based solar projects within the Renewable Standard Offer program. Projects can range from >50 kW up to 1 MW DC, and must use local, NABCEP-certified installers. Explore more about the Solar Solutions Initiative.
Dispersed Power Production
Facilities that make small amounts of power (typically less than 80 megawatts) may qualify to connect to TVA power lines. Once connected, a qualifying facility can use its power for itself and sell any extra to TVA at TVA's avoided costs, or it can sell all of its power to TVA at TVA's avoided costs.
