Knoxville Utilities Board Solar Project

Knox County, Tennessee

On October 19, 2020, TVA completed an environmental assessment and issued a finding of no significant impact for a proposal to enter into a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) with Knoxville Utilities Board for a solar project located at the Knoxville Public Works Facility Complex in Knox County, Tennessee.  The solar facility will provide up to 1 megawatt of generating capacity on approximately 2.03 acres. The proposed project falls under the Flexibility Research Project, which is a TVA board-approved program that allows local power companies to build generation and sell power back to TVA through a PPA.

Entering into this PPA would meet TVA’s objectives to create additional renewable energy under the Flexibility Research Project, which allows LPCs to build, own, and operate generation.
