KNOXVILLE, Tenn. – The Tennessee Valley Authority is requesting offers for up to 2,000 swine renewable energy credits that meet the North Carolina Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Portfolio Standard for Compliance Year 2021.
Offers must be submitted through the TVA website by Feb. 15, 2022.
Swine renewable energy credits are associated with electricity generated by swine-waste fueled electric generating facilities properly registered with the state of North Carolina.
TVA is investing in swine RECs to support innovative solutions for cleaner energy to promote economic development opportunities in North Carolina. In fiscal year 2021, TVA’s economic development efforts supported record-breaking job creation – nearly 81,000 jobs and more than $8.8 billion in capital investment attracted to its seven-state service region.
TVA is a national leader in carbon reduction with nearly 60% carbon-free energy generation. Currently, TVA has over 8,000 megawatts of renewable energy in its portfolio. Adding North Carolina swine RECs is one way TVA continues to be in the top quartile for renewable energy production in the southeast United States.
