The People Behind the Power

For the past 85 years, the employees of TVA and its local power companies have dedicated their lives to bringing electricity to the Tennessee Valley. They look forward to doing it for many more years to come.


Providing power to the 9 million people of the Tennessee Valley 24/7/365 takes discipline, passion and commitment. That’s just what the employees of TVA bring to the office every day of the week. We share those values in common with the 154 local power companies who deliver electricity to your homes and businesses, schools and hospitals, grocery stores and churches and much more.

And we share those values with you—our friends and neighbors, for whom we we work together to keep the lights on throughout the Valley so that our mission of being the best place in the United States to live, work and play is not just a notion, but a reality.

It’s been our pleasure to serve the Valley for the past 85 years; we look forward to doing it for many, many more.
