NORTH MISSISSIPPI — The Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) reports that its economic development efforts produced $4.2 billion in capital investments across the Tennessee Valley, exceeding the utility’s goal of $3 billion for fiscal year 2009. TVA also helped retain and attract nearly 26,000 jobs over that period, which ended Sept. 30, 2009. TVA senior vice president for economic development John Bradley said, “TVA is always looking for strategic initiatives to support regional, state and local economic development partners in their efforts to create and retain jobs and investments.”
