TVA Begins Public Meetings on Draft Integrated Resource Plan
CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. – The Tennessee Valley Authority will host a public meeting and webinar on Thursday, March 19, about the newly released draft of its 2015 Integrated Resource Plan, a guide to TVA’s energy planning decisions for the next 20 years.
The meeting, the first of seven TVA will offer around the Valley, will be held at TVA’s Chattanooga Office Complex in the Tennessee River Room of the Missionary Ridge building. The session will be from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. EDT.
The IRP and associated Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement is a study of how TVA might meet future energy and capacity needs in a variety of future conditions. Currently, TVA is in the draft phase of the study and is holding public meetings to answer questions and obtain feedback on the results.
Additional meetings will be held April 6 in Knoxville; April 9 in Huntsville, Ala.; April 14 in Tupelo, Miss.; April 15 in Memphis; April 21 in Nashville, and April 22 in Bowling Green, Ky. A webinar will be offered during the Knoxville meeting as well.
The TVA staff will present its recommendations on a final version of the plan to the TVA board of directors in August.
Public comments and questions may be submitted on the project website or by email at IRP@tva.gov.
