Residential Programs

Today’s residential customers are savvier than ever about the potential of renewable power. That’s why TVA partners with your local power company to offer multiple ways for you to get information and take action when you want to go green. Whether you want to invest in renewable energy for your home or have an existing system and want to sell power back to TVA, we have programs to help.

I have an existing solar energy system and want to sell power back to TVA.

You may qualify for participation in the Dispersed Power Production program. Through DPP, TVA allows qualified facilities generating up to 80 MW or less whose primary energy source is renewable (hydro, wind or solar), biomass, waste, or geothermal resources to sell part or all of the power it produces to TVA at TVA’s avoided cost.
