Last Monday, March 9, the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) released a draft of its 2015 Integrated Resource Plan (IRP).
The draft long-range energy plan aims to find the best mix of energy sources TVA can rely on over the next 20 years to meet anticipated power demands.
TVA began taking public comments on March 13 and will continue through April 27 as it works toward producing a final version of the plan to be presented to the TVA board this summer.
The comment period will include public meetings and a chance to submit comments to TVA online. A copy of the draft IRP and a related Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement are online at www.tva.com/environment/reports/irp.
A public meeting is being held today in Chattanooga (March 19). Other meetings will be in Knoxville, April 6; Huntsville, Ala., April 9; Tupelo, Miss., April 14; Memphis, April 15; Nashville, April 21; and Bowling Green, Ky., April 22.
